California Secretary for Natural Resources Wade Crowfoot

BONUS: Wade Crowfoot on Building Wildfire Resilience



More than 7% of California has burned in the last five years. Clearly, past methods of wildfire prevention haven’t worked. Now, California is embracing a variety of new approaches to land management in an effort to beat back the flames. California Natural Resources Secretary Wade Crowfoot oversees the state's public lands, parks, wildlife and its firefighting agency, CalFire.

As part of our slate of SF Climate Week events, Secretary Crowfoot spoke with KQED Science Reporter Danielle Venton about his work leading efforts to better adapt the state to the risk of wildfires.
