USA — Landowners in Potter and Randall counties who have been affected by recent wildfires can attend a workshop June 28 to learn how to restore their land in the aftermath of a disaster.

Almost 3 million acres of Texas land have burned since wildfire season started on Nov. 15, 2010.

“We want to let citizens know what resources are available to them as they recover from these tragic wildfires,” said Brian Scott, a forester with Texas Forest Service.

The informational “After the Fire” workshop will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, June 28, at the GRIT Center, 8827 S. Washington in Amarillo. Registration starts at 9:30 a.m.

Representatives from partnering agencies – Texas Forest Service, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Farm Service Agency and Texas AgriLife Extension Service – will be on hand to help answer questions.

Topics include native grass recovery and soils, cost share programs and “Firewise” safety principles. Lunch will be provided.
