Wildfire Info

Wildfire risk is increasing in western Washington due to changing climate conditions that include:

  • Increasing air temperature
  • Decreasing summer rain
  • Earlier snowmelt

It all adds up to drier fuels and forests that are more receptive to ignition and spread of wildfire.

Whatcom Conservation District has the knowledge and resources to help homeowners and communities understand their wildfire risk and feel empowered to take preparedness actions.
