Fire Hazard Mitigation Work to Begin along Railroad Tunnel Bike Path in Early April

Central Marin Fire Department and Marin County Parks will begin phase one of a planned fire hazard reduction project April  5, on County owned land near the railroad tunnel bike path between Tunnel Lane and Montecito Drive. Funded primarily by Marin Tax Measure C (2020) and the Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority (MWPA), this project aims to control the spread of invasive, fire-hazardous vegetation like french broom, reduce the buildup of dead vegetation that might increase the intensity of wildfires, improve the safety of evacuation routes and nearby homes, and restore the health of native plants and wildlife habitat. 
Work will continue in phases through 2021, beginning with manual broom pulling and picking up dead and down woody material without the use of machinery to occur for 5 days in early April. A second phase, to include tree pruning and removal of larger material will resume after July 31.
The area was surveyed by Marin County Parks biologists to ensure the safety of nesting birds, bats, and woodrats and cleared for hand work to begin immediately.
