Welcome to the Southern Sierra Prescribed Fire Council

Our mission is to serve as a venue for practitioners, state and federal agencies, academic institutions, tribes, non-governmental organizations, coalitions, and interested individuals to work collaboratively to promote, protect, conserve, and expand the responsible use of prescribed fire and cultural fire in the southern Sierra Nevada’s fire-adapted landscapes and fire-dependent landscapes, and to promote public understanding and acceptance on the ecological and cultural importance of burning.

Subscribe to the SSPFC email list to receive updates about our meetings and relevant information on prescribed fire in the region. We use the email list sparingly to send out updates about meetings and other relevant fire and air quality efforts in the southern Sierra Nevada region.
