ELKO FIRE AND VEGETATION MANAGEMENT FAIR - LOCATION CHANGE

The location of the Elko Fire Fair originally announced for the Elko Convention Center on July 12-14 has been moved to Great Basin College in Elko and will be held on those same dates.

The Fire Fair is a free public event aimed at letting people know how to protect their homes and property from wildfire and providing information about the community resources available to help them. Presentations on “defensible space” for landowners in the rural-urban interface (July 12), as well as technical sessions on wildland fire ecology and management (July 13), will be held in room 130 of the Greenhaw Technical Arts Building. A free picnic the evening of July 12 will be held on campus outside the GTA Building. For more information about the event, please call Joe Freeland (BLM) at 753-0200 or Kent McAdoo (Cooperative Extension) at 738-1251.
