The wildfire risk mitigation project on the land surrounding the Mesa Lab is now complete. On behalf of the project management team, I thank you for your support and patience throughout the project.
The two-year project, which began in 2011, was designed to reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire and improve the mesa's forest and grassland ecosystem. Mitigation work included forest thinning around buildings and the removal of dead, dying, and diseased trees.
