I am Marcia Sivek and this is BeProvided Conservation Radio. As we enter summer with no real rain from the winter and no forecast of any rain in the future; California is drying up. It is time to be prepared for the worst, especially for those of us living in areas where there is a lot fuel for a fire. So in today’s episode, I speak with Grey Hayes as some of you may remember he helped me start this podcast a few years back and did cohost several episodes with me.
I sought out Grey, not only for vast knowledge of ecology, grasslands and nature in general but also because he, for the most part, alone fought the fire to save his home. He lives in the area designated as the CZU Lightening Complex. I want others to hear his experience and heed his advice on preparing for the next fire. It is not if the next big fire will happen, it is when.
I met Grey at Natural Bridges in Santa Cruz on beautiful spring day. You may hear ambients sounds of nature and man! Enjoy this episode and note you can learn more about Grey and his Community for Nature at www.greyhayes.net.
