Wildfire Risk Reduction

Paradise Recreation and Park District's

Wildland Buffer Project

The Paradise Recreation and Park District is preparing a forward-looking plan to reduce the potential risk of future wildfires to local communities within the District’s jurisdiction.

The Wildland Buffer Project would create a network of interconnected trails, parks and managed open space that would:

· Reduce the risk of wildfires to communities in Butte Creek Canyon, the Ridge and the Concow Basin.

· Provide open space for parks, hiking, biking, horseback riding and agricultural uses.

· Improve wildlife habitat and the watershed.

· Support local economic development.
