Greater Willow Creek Community Meeting

The Humboldt County Resource Conservation District and partners were awarded over $5 million under the U.S. Forest Service’s Community Wildfire Defense Grant to implement a suite of area-wide outreach, education, and implementation actions as well as the implementation of 9 priority fuels reduction projects in and around the communities Willow Creek, Salyer, and Hawkins Bar to improve the resiliency of the region to catastrophic wildfire. This community-based application was driven by the leadership and vision of local and regional project partners, including the Willow Creek Fire Safe Council, Lower Trinity River Prescribed Burn Association, Trinity County Resource Conservation District, Willow Creek Volunteer Fire Department, Willow Creek Community Services District, and the Watershed Research and Training Center. This project will also complement hazardous fuels reduction projects planned on Six Rivers National Forest.
