Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Service of Parker County, in cooperation with the Parker County Master Gardeners, will provide a 90 minute seminar to address the threat of wildfires and how damage can be mitigated using Firewise Landscaping methods at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 27 at the extension office, 604 N. Main Street in Weatherford.
As the Possum Kingdom fire of 2012 showed, Parker and neighboring counties are prime examples of an area where the wildfire threat is extremely high. Residents, especially newcomers, need to know about wildfires and understand the steps they can take, as individuals or through their homeowners associations, to lessen this threat.
The class fee of $10 will cover the costs of handouts and other supplies. To register for this class, call the Parker County Extension Office at 817-598-6168.
