Citron Bowl Wildfire Hazard Reduction Project

Citron Bowl Acacia and Fire Hazard Reduction Project

Central Marin Fire Department has partnered with the City of Larkspur, Marin County Open Space District, and the Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority to reduce hazardous wildfire fuels near the Citron Fire Road and Citron Bowl area in the King Mountain Open Space Preserve (see map attached below). The project is designed to remove hazardous invasive vegetation fuel and to restore native plant communities and improve natural habitat. Funding for the project is provided by local Measure C dollars from the Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority.

The project will include removal and treatment of invasive and hazardous vegetation, including acacia, cotoneaster, broom, eucalyptus, and dead and downed vegetation. Crews will utilize chainsaws and hand tools to cut vegetation, and will create several piles to be burned by the fire department when permissible and safe over the winter. Central Marin Fire Department thanks you in advance for your patience and support during the project, expected to begin in November 2020 with ongoing maintenance through 2021.
