Pepperwood preserveOver the past two years, California has been devastated by the worst wildfires in its history. As those fires continue to grow in frequency and intensity, the state has begun to fight fire with fire.  Felicity Barringer, editor and lead writer at the Bill Lane Center for the American West talked with KRCB’s Adia White about the benefits of controlled burns.

To hear a story about how Native Americans use prescribed burns, listen to our podcast, "Living Downstream", episode 2, “Firing Forests to Save Them”.
