A workshop is being held Thursday night at the Feather Falls Grange by the University of California Cooperative Extension and the Yankee Fire Safe Council.

Plus, 5,000 seedlings of Ponderosa Pines and Dugless Fures will be handed out to those who attend all to will help re-forest the land that burned.

There will be several speakers teaching residents how to help their land recover.

Even though this fire this was human caused, the fuel there is extremely dense and those who come to the workshop will learn how to prevent a future from spreading.
