Resilient Taos County: Living with Wildfire was produced in partnership with the Community Planning Assistance for Wildfire (CPAW) program, Taos County, and the Community Wildfire Protection Plan team.
As part of the CPAW program, Headwaters Economics has been working with partners in Taos County for two years to reduce wildfire risk through improved land use planning, risk assessments, and collaborative community efforts.
In addition, regional partners are collaborating to restore landscapes, reduce fuels in neighborhood forests, plan for emergencies, and monitor watershed health.
Headwaters Economics developed this story map to help educate residents and visitors about the history of fire in the region, provide preparedness and emergency resources, and connect the community with partners working across boundaries and jurisdictions to reduce wildfire risk. A print version in English and Spanish is also available. (where?, who?)
