Controlled Burn Tests Eco-Benefits of Fire – May 31, 2017

Native Americans regularly used fire to optimize their landscape. Can that still work today?

That plume of smoke rising near Glen Ellen late Tuesday morning was a carefully watched experiment in applying a land management technique that goes back thousands of years. KRCB’s Bruce Robinson was there to observe, and report.
