Seminars:Firescaping & Don't Get Burned By Cal/OSHA

With fires raging throughout California, homeowners are increasingly turning to green industry professionals for help. Landscape Designer Renee French will talk you through the design, plant selection and maintenance steps need to increase property value and provide homeowners with peace of mind. In addition to addressing the ins and outs of firescaping, she'll also address another hot topic: Petscaping -- beautiful landscapes that make special consideration for pets.

When it comes to peace of mind, Cal/OSHA may be the last thing you want to think about. Our second speaker, Dan Leiner, an Area Manager for Cal/OSHA's Consultation Services Branch, will quickly change that opinion. With plenty of practical advice, Dan will help you avoid being burned by Cal/OSHA regulations.
