Tesuque Valley Community Association Meeting

  • Tesuque Elementary School 1555 Bishops Lodge Road Santa Fe, NM, 87506 United States (map)

The Greater Santa Fe Fireshed Coalition is finalizing a strategy for forest restoration in the Southern Sangre de Cristos, including the Village of Tesuque and surrounding areas. The core of the strategy is a model for analyzing different levels of wildfire risk across the landscape, which takes into account landscape characteristics and the values (i.e. structures, infrastructure, special places) on the landscape. Steve Bassett of The Nature Conservancy has conducted this assessment and mapped the results to highlight where treatments such as thinning or prescribed burns are most necessary, and how intensive treatments must be to mitigate the wildfire risk. Steve will be at the TVCA meeting on May 7 to discuss the risk assessment model and to answer questions about the Fireshed Strategy. Local representatives from the U.S. Forest Service and the Pueblo of Tesuque will also be at the meeting to answer questions as well.
