Intentional Living In and Around Fire-Prone Landscapes
Fired Up! is a project of the National Association of Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Councils, and the United States Forest Service (USFS); developed and provided by the Bitter Root RC&D.
The purpose of this project is to provide educators with tools to help students learn about their local forest environment and the real-life issues that people face when intentionally living in and around fire-prone landscapes.
The National Association of RC&D Councils advocates for local RC&D councils and helps local councils identify, address, and solve challenges to sustain and improve the quality of life in their communities. The National Association of RC&D Councils was established in 1988 to represent America’s 375 local RC&D councils. The local councils deliver coordinated resources conservation and rural development assistance throughout rural America. By working together on local RC&D councils; communities, all levels of government, and grassroots organizations work together to develop and implement solutions to widespread problems and to develop opportunities that will help sustain rural communities, local economies, and natural resources.
