SEQUOIA AND KINGS CANYON NATIONAL PARKS, California October 20, 2021- A community meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 21, 2021 at the Three Rivers Memorial Building at 43490 Sierra Drive in Three Rivers, CA.

This is the first in a series of upcoming community meetings hosted by Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks as we transition from fire suppression, to fire recovery. This meeting will provide a brief fire update and introduction to the incoming Incident Management Team taking over the KNP Complex beginning this evening. The focus of this meeting, however, will be introducing the Burned Area Emergency Response Team and process, and talk about some of the work needed for a safe reopening of Sequoia National Park.

Please wear masks regardless of vaccination status.

The event will be livestreamed on Facebook @SequoiaKingsNPS and the Sequoia and Kings Canyon NPS YouTube channel. A recording of the meeting will be made available on both sites after it concludes.
