Mother Lode PBA

What is the MLPBA?

The Mother Lode Prescribed Burn Association (MLPBA) was created by a group of inspired locals who realized the importance of using fire as a land management tool. Our goal is to aid in the return of fire to the land by equipping the community with the tools, training, and resources to conduct burning operations of varying size and complexity on their own property. Even as prescribed fire becomes more widely accepted as the future of firefighting, it tends to be limited to government agencies on public lands. At MLPBA we accept all experience levels, whether you are a hotshot or you only almost successfully built a campfire once, we believe that fire is for everyone and that providing the public the opportunity to manage their land using fire is integral to creating a fire safe community.
