2022 Wildfire Prevention Workshop
June 29, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
This photo by Darren Edwards shows flames from the Cottonwood Trail Fire rushing toward homes in the community of Harrisburg. The 1,600-acre Cottonwood Trail Fire was one of four human-caused fires that burned nearly 25% of the Red Cliffs NCA/Desert Reserve in 2020. These fires jumped roads and interstates, destroyed critical desert tortoise habitat, wiped out stunning viewsheds, and jeopardized the safety of nearby residents, causing evacuations.
