FireScape Mendocino is one of the newest landscapes in the FLN, having hosted its first workshop in November 2013. The group is working to develop a stakeholder-based approach to fire management of the Mendocino National Forest and the surrounding area. They are using the Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation for their foundational planning, with their planning work being supported by field trips, historical photos, GIS-based fire risk assessment, traditional ecological knowledge and other tools.
