The Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network (FAC Net) is a social impact network that helps communities learn to live more safely with wildfire. The Watershed Center and The Nature Conservancy have partnered to steward this network of communities that are sharing best practices and innovations in fire adaptation across the US.
At the heart of the network are its members–and the connections among them–that facilitate local and regional action, and that transfer learning nationally. Since launching in 2013, the FAC Net has grown to include over 90 members that are working together to help communities take action before, during, and after wildfires.
FAC Net produces a weekly blog and a monthly newsletter that features stories from fire adapted communities around the country. Subscribe here.
