A year after devastating fires, Santa Monica Mountains NRA begins long, arduous clean-up
A year after a wildfire burned across 88 percent of the federal landscape in Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area crews are beginning the dirty task of removing debris and potentially hazardous materials from 30 structures that burned down. The Woolsey Fire also damaged 112 miles of trails as it burned across the landscape.
Unfortunately, the National Park Service is not eligible for the assistance provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency for cleaning up burned sites. FEMA has provided contaminant clean-up through the California Office of Emergency Services for most private landowners, local, and state governments impacted by the Woolsey Fire.
