In 2017, American Conservation Experience (ACE) partnered with the City of Flagstaff and Flagstaff Watershed Protection Project to thin 110 acres of hazardous fuels in Dry Lake Hills, just north of Flagstaff. The goal was to reduce the threat of forest fires and post-fire flood impacts.
This successful partnership will now continue thanks to support from the City of Flagstaff, National Forest Foundation and Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management.
ACE will be employing, training and deploying 24 emerging forestry professionals, now through late November, to thin an additional 200 acres in Dry Lake Hills and Brookbank Meadow.
