PORTOLA VALLEY, Calif. (KGO) — You may have noticed some smoke along the Peninsula Monday in the Portola Valley.

It was deliberate. Researchers at Stanford taking advantage of the wet weather – burning debris for wildfire management this week.

With the rainy season winding down, the fire season is coming up fast.

Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve researchers say there’s a clear way to prevent them: low-intensity fires reduce wildfire risk by 60%.

“Fuel reduction, wildfire management, risk mitigation is a community-level effort,” Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve Stewardship Scientist Sheena Sidhu said.

“We have to work together. If one person is doing something over here and one person is doing something over there, if it’s not connected and a fire were to come through, that would be a risk. But, if we all work together, that’s when you’re going to get the best risk-mitigation.”

The team from Stanford’s Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve is doing their part with these pile burns.
