The NFPA Firewise staff is in Idaho this week visiting with Idaho Firewise, state & local fire officials and federal partners. While there, the team toured the Idaho Botanical Garden, which includes the BLM Firewise Garden. The BLM Firewise Garden was developed just outside of the Lewis and Clark Native Plant Garden Wetland. It is a partnership between the Bureau of Land Management and CWC Horticulture Program.

“Destruction is not inevitable in a wildland fire,” says Michelle Steinberg of the National Fire Protection Association. “People can do many things around their home, with the home itself and everything around it within a couple feet that make a big difference.”
