Grazing is a natural, economical, and sustainable solution to reducing vegetation fuel and wildfire hazards in Marin. In 2018 FIRESafe MARIN helped bring 800 goats and sheep to central Marin where they grazed more than 340 acres of high-risk grass woodlands, clearing 1-2 acres a day of vegetation, including non-native, invasive plants. This approach proved cost effective and gentle on the land, reducing the fuels for fire, restoring native grasslands where firefighters can more easily control fires, limiting greenhouse gas emissions, and creating pastoral fuel breaks in the open spaces between communities. In 2019, with your help, we plan to expand this valuable project to 1200+ goats and nearly 500 acres!
