The Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network (FAC Net or the Network) is a national group working to build sustainable wildfire resilience capacity in fire-prone communities. The Network is the result of a partnership between The Nature Conservancy, the Watershed Research and Training Center and the USDA Forest Service.
We connect and support people and communities who are striving to live more safely with wildfire. The Network is a catalyst for spreading best practices and innovations in fire adaptation practices nationwide. We’re the go-to source of information for community wildfire resiliency best practices, models for success, and lessons learned.
One way FAC Net makes a difference is by contributing to local, regional and national conversations about wildland fire issues. Since 2017, magazines, newspapers and radio stations featured FAC Net and our members’ work more than 40 times. Our hope is that each time our story is told, more communities better understand how to live more safely with inevitable wildfire.
