Wildfire Awareness week in California is coming up and to help raise awareness the Fire Safe Council of Nevada County is hosting the Wildfire Community Preparedness Event at Sierra College on Saturday, May 7th. Stop by the Grass Valley campus between 10am-3pm and watch live demonstrations, participate in the kids activities, learn fire safe information, landscaping ideas and more. Don’t forget to say hi to Smokey the Bear. The Fire Safe Council is a non-profit, local volunteer organization dedicated to making Nevada County safer from catastrophic wildfire through fire prevention education, fire break clearing projects and creating Firewise Communities. If you’re looking for more information about the bark beetle kill, check out their website to “help understand why there are so many dead trees,” explained Executive Director Joanne Drummond. And to help support the Fire Safe Council, the Outside Inn’s blog has 2 tickets to give away to their upcoming Wine & Culinary Adventure at the Miners Foundry on Friday, May 13th, donated by Ingrid & Warren Knox. You can travel to four tasting stations (Greece, Thailand, Italy & Ireland) with cuisine by Emily’s Catering and live Music by Three Times Through. Post a comment on this blog post and I’ll announce the winner on Friday, May 6th. *Edited to say the winner is Dick Spring, congrats.
