Chaparral Institute

Do you all know of the California Chaparral Institute? Rick Halsey is doing great work to protect the remaining open spaces where chaparral flourishes. He is also a rich font of information about fires. Chaprral fires are very different from northern California “forest fires” and it is a sensitive issue – please do check out his resources – he’s got tons of information at his web site, and has a newsletter you can sign up for.
