Junking Junipers to Prevent Wildfires

University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Living with Fire program hosted events to help homeowners reduce the threat of wildfires, including “Junk the Junipers,” where residents bring flammable, woody vegetation from their yards to be turned into mulch or safely burned. Extension educators collected 50 tons of junipers and other flammable materials.

NIFA originally published this impact in the NIFA 2017 Annual Report. Want to read about more impacts like this? Check out Fresh from the Field, a weekly bulletin showcasing transformative impacts made by grantees funded by NIFA.
