Join the Kansas Forest Service, K-State Research and Extension, Geary County Fire Department, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 14, at the 4-H Senior Citizens Center, 1025 South Spring Valley Road, Junction City, to learn about how to be prepared in the event of a wildfire.

Prevent fire damage to your property by being prepared. You'll learn how to make informed management decisions to prevent wildfire damage to your home, farmstead, livestock and equipment. Subject matter experts will cover topics such as natural versus invasive land cover and fuel, brush management practices, homeowner fire prevention, fire departments and wildfires in the wildland-urban interface, and resources that are available to cope with damage and loss. This event is free and open to the public.
