Wildfire Prevention Work in Junipero Serra Park
Monday, January, 27, 2020
To reduce the threat of wildfire to neighboring communities, the San Mateo County Parks Department has collaborated with CAL FIRE to treat approximately five acres of vegetation along the boundary of Junipero Serra Park and houses along Terrace Drive in Milbrae.
The project focused on expanding an existing shaded fuel break to improve defensible space for neighbors by removing brush and small-diameter trees. Planning for this project included assessment of the area for special status species and identification of erosion prevention measures.
