Aeolia Heights protects itself from fire

-A +A
Resident Fred Merriam works to remove low limbs in Saturday’s Aeolia Heights Project Canyon Safe effort. The clearing was part of an ongoing brush-removal effort that started in May in Robie Point. The mission of the program is to create a shaded fuel break in the American River Canyon, lowering fire risk to residents as well as making it possible for fire crews to safely fight any fires that do occur. The program is a partnership between resident volunteers, the Auburn Fire Department, the Greater Auburn Area Fire Safe Council and California Conservation Corps. ~Bridget Jones
