Wilderness Lake Ranch in High Valley has been selected as one of six Idaho communities for a one-day workshop to:

  • review and assess this community‚Äôs level of wildfire preparedness
  • identify strategies for improvement

Idaho Department of Lands, University of Idaho and Idaho Smart Growth are conducting these workshops to help all communities improve their wildfire preparedness. The growing threat of wildfire in areas of development are shared by all communities large and small.

While this day will focus on Wilderness Lake Ranch the strategies for creating a resilient community are the same and we invite others to attend to learn what they can do in their own communities.
