SAFE (Sustainable and Fire SafE) Landscapes has developed guidelines for creating and maintaining fire-safe, environmentally-friendly landscapes in the wildland-urban interface that minimize the use and spread of invasive plants. The project represents a collaboration between the University of California Cooperative Extension, the Council for Watershed Health, the Los Angeles County Fire Department Forestry Division, Ventura County Fire, the National Park Service, and numerous other governmental, nonprofit and business organizations. Support was provided by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, the National Park Service, and the California Department of Food and Agriculture.
