Tamarack Resort Firewise Demonstration Landscape

 Tamarack Environmental Protection Association (TEPA) applied for and received grant funds from Idaho Firewise (IDFW) August 21, 2014. The grant was used to help cover costs associated with plant materials that were used in a Firewise demonstration landscape adjacent to the Tamarack Resort emergency services building located in the West Mountain area of Long Valley Idaho.

Idaho Firewise Southern Idaho Project Manager Brett Van Paepeghem met with Tamarack representatives Jan West and Cathy Dvorak last fall to assess the site and make Firewise plant species recommendations. Over this summer Alpha Nursery from Cascade completed the installation of the landscape and signage relating to wildfire issues has been installed. The project now serves as an educational demonstration for local residents and visitors to the resort.
