Day 2: Cut Your Grass!
Marin's grasslands provide the fuel for our most frequent and fast moving wildfires. Dry grass is particularly susceptible to ignition - carelessly dropped cigarettes, illegal fireworks, mower blades, and hot car mufflers frequently ignite grass fires. These fast-moving fires damage and destroy homes every year in California and Marin, often in the first few minutes of a wildfire before firefighters arrive.
