Honey Lake Valley Resource Conservation District (HLVRCD) is accepting applications for the position
of a part-time Prescribed Burn Associated (PBA) Project Coordinator for the Lassen PBA. This position
works under direct supervision of the HLVRCD District Manager and HLVRCD Board of Directors.
A prescribed burn association is a group of landowners and other organizations working together to
utilize low-intensity fire as a fuels reduction and forest stewardship tool. HLVRCD is working to teach
private landowners by providing educational workshops and resources, and hosting demonstration
burns to build a knowledgeable public capable of burning in a safe, legal, and ecologically responsible
manner. We aim to empower residents by providing opportunities for them to gain experience in using
fire as a tool so they can feel comfortable using it on their own land.

Post Fire Recovery Assistance Program Interest Form is Now Open

The project provides an important means for landowners, who otherwise could not afford site preparation and reforestation treatments, to rehabilitate their lands in the wake of the Dixie (2021), Beckwourth Complex (2021), Hog and Sheep Fires (2020). Our goals are to remove standing dead forest fuels, restore forest health and resilience, stabilize soil and reduce erosion from the burned landscape, restore wildlife habitat for forest-dwelling species, and promote landscape-level carbon storage in trees. This program will not require any cost to landowners, but will require some preparation and post-activity work as well as collaboration with the Honey Lake Valley RCD (HLVRCD), Lassen Fire Safe Council, and selected contractors. Our goal is to improve approximately 1500 acres of private lands in the district. These projects are grant funded through the United States Forest Service until 2024. For more information review the HLVRC's Post Fire Recovery Assistance User Guide. After you've reviewed the User Guide fill out the interest form. This form will be avaiable though October 31st, 2022. Paper interest forms will also be available for those who don’t have internet access with a drop box at the HLVRCD office.
