When complete, the Fire Safe Garden, situated on a 1-acre hillside located between the existing Oak Glen Pavilion and Present Garden, will provide a working model of landscape design principles aimed specifically at protecting life and property from the devastating effects of wildfire.
The Fire Safe Garden interpretive area at the base of the hill along the walkway will be an integrated, fire-safe structure. This central structure will demonstrate the importance of fire-wise building construction methods and also shows the relationship between a building and the surrounding landscaping. The four firescaping zones are arranged in a series of concentric rings, with the structure at the center. The structure will house interpretive information on fire safety. Access the Discovery Trail Head at the top of the Fire Safe Garden.
Funding for this project has been provided in part by the Morro Bay National Estuary Program, the Fire Safe Garden has been sponsored by grants from the San Luis Obispo Community Fire Safe Council, and the Miossi Trust.
