In partnership with the Library's Gallery Exhibit, the Library has put together a guide to resources about wildfires in California

Destructive California Wildifres

Sonoma County has 'historic wildfire corridors', places in which wildfires tend to spark and quickly become hard to contain. For example, the 2017 Tubbs fire zone very closely mimics the 1964 Hanley fire zone. To learn more about wildfire patterns and prevention, we should learn about our historic fire disasters.
