Good fire on the land at Indian Canyon!
“Our meadow restoration practices [with fire] have proven that we don’t need to reintroduce species, because what belongs there is there and or will be brought back there by the habitat while traveling through the meadow. All the plants that belong there will flourish when the water returns and the openness returns and the sunlight returns and they are no longer competing for space and moisture or light.“ -Ron Goode, North Fork Mono Tribe chairman
These control/prescribed burns effectively kill off invasive plants, helping to restore natural habitat. The removal of the excess foliage will reduce fuel for forest fires and help reduce the effects of climate change, as well as help our state absorb more water into our meadows and replenish our groundwater.
