Sponsored by the Fire Safe Council of San Diego County, it will feature foresters from CALFIRE, the USDA Forest Service and arborists from the University of California Extension Riverside and the Professional Tree Care Association of San Diego County as featured speakers.

The workshop will be held from 10 a.m. until noon at Mission Trails Regional Park, Classroom A, 1 Father Junipero Serra Trail, San Diego.
