Fire Prevention Efforts Were Underway at Wright’s Field in Alpine Before West Fire

By Alpine Chamber of Commerce  – August 2018

With the West Fire bearing down from the east end of Alpine on July 6,2018 the natural park known as Wright’s Field in the center of Alpine was already well-prepared. Fortunately, firefighters stopped the blaze just before it got into the natural preserve loved by walkers, hikers, bike and horseback riders. In recent years the Back Country Land Trust, which owns the 230-acre field,  had been working with firefighters on fire prevention measures well before the West fire. Those efforts are continuing….

The July 6 West Fire that destroyed or damaged dozens of homes and buildings in Alpine came close to Wright’s Field before firefighters stopped the blaze. Thanks to the Back Country Land Trust (BCLT) which owns the 230-acre natural park in the center of this rural community and local fire agencies, the field has already been undergoing fire prevention efforts in recent years.

“We’re all very familiar with the park,” Chief Bill Paskle of the Alpine Fire Protection District said later, praising BCLT’s fire prevention efforts for the preserve. “We do walk it.  I walk it regularly as a private citizen.” Firefighters and the BCLT have partnered for fire prevention and quick access to the park for almost seven years, said Jon Green, BCLT’ program and outreach director. “The Back Country Land Trust takes our obligations for fire safety very seriously while also balancing the needs of habitat,” Green said.

Wright’s Field, part of this area’s rich history, is popular with residents, visitors and tourists for walking, hiking, bike riding, horseback riding and just relaxing. “The first thing is that it’s a natural preserve, so we can’t go in there heavy-handed,” Paskle said.  “But we do look at the vegetation around the edges of the field to make sure it’s trimmed.  They (BCLT) do a fabulous job of that.” The fire chief said the district has supported BCLT’s efforts to get grants to maintain Wright’s Field and the agency has a good relationship with Green. “The BCLT does not own all of the open space in the center of town,” Green noted. “We own about half of the open space out there.” He said he is listening to fire agencies, taking their advice and continuing to improve fire prevention at Wright’s Field.


BCLT, a member of the Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce, completed a very large project last year to reduce vegetation that might fuel fires in or near the field. “It was our first priority – removing non-native species,” Green said. “We also removed several eucalyptus trees.”

The second priority, he said, was thinning the native shrubs so there’s space between them and that took money. BCLT obtained a $108,000 CAL FIRE grant through the Urban Corps to get both priorities taken care of between 2016 and 2017. Green said the land trust also got an $18,000 Sunrise Powerlink Community Protection grant through a fire mitigation fund to upgrade and repair all gates at Wright’s Field.

The gates’ project was important because firefighters and other emergency responders need to easily get big rigs and other vehicles in and out of the field, Green said. “We increased the number of access points to Wright’s Field from five to eight,” he said.   “All the new gates have a 30-foot width for fire department access.” Firefighters had to use one of the new gates earlier this year to rescue an injured horseback rider in the field, said Green.

“Going forward, we are consulting with Alpine Fire, CAL FIRE and various local wildlife agencies to plan for more defensible space projects,” he said. “We want to be planning ahead, not be behind.”

FOUND CAT: Female Fluffy Tabby Cat, Barons Market in Alpine 7-8-18

We have a little Ms. Tabby that has been hanging around Baron’s Marketplace since the fire. Not quite sure if she was abandoned or dropped-off, but she is in need of shelter and a good home. She is getting food and water from the wonderful people around her, but she cannot survive much longer in a busy marketplace (and parking lot!) without becoming injured. If she is your kitty, or you’re looking to rescue, please contact: I also have a photo, and my daughter created a video of her socializing in case you need more details.

P.S. She is a amber/brown tabby with gorgeous caramel eyes. Might have been preggers at one point as she has a pooch 🙂

“Sassy” the Sweet LOVE BUG

It’s heartbreaking that our Sassy has not found her forever human/family. In January we were so close. A family met Sassy and fell in love, they adopted her but returned her a few days later. The hopes was that she would make an emotional support dog for the families young son. But Sassy did not take to the family cats and began testing limits, her new family was unable to meet her need of a confident dog owner. Despite doing all the right things in preparing to bring her home.

Sassy has now been in foster care 490 days, she is a 7 yrs old Staffordshire Bull Terrier, when we found Sassy she loved her whole life outside chained to her doghouse/ used for breeding. Sassy lives with her foster mom Moira, who is also a dog trainer, in Lakeside, she is crate trained, knows basic commands, she loves walks and being outdoors.

Despite her past life Sassy is a love bug with lots of energy. She is a very smart girl who enjoys learning new things. Her exuberant energy needs a place to run around at times, and with clear direction from her human, she thrives. Sassy needs a home with the right human who has dog experience and who is able to set limits and boundaries with her. She would do best in a home with no cats, and is at her best as the only dog. With the right person who can give her the direction and she needs, she aims to please and has lots of love to give.

If you’d like to meet Sassy please call either Stephanie at 760-815-8464 or Sonnya at 619-249-3649 or email The Miracle Foundation SD at

Barn + Mice = CAT

Since 2015, Love Your Feral Friends has been been placing at risk felines in Barn Cat Programs. We are dedicated to saving the lives of fear cats who are impounded at animal control facilities and, for one reason or another, cannot be returned to their original habitats. These cats are healthy, sterilized, vaccinated, and in dire need of a new outdoor home, such as a barn, stable, garage, or warehouse.

These cats are typically not suitable to be indoor pets and have no desire to be lap cats. These are working cats, former street cats who are used to outdoor life, prefer minimal to no human contact, and who will happily tend to your mouse, mole, chipmunk, or vermin problems for the small cost of a bowl of cat food and water set out daily, and shelter in our garage or barn. And because we spay/neuter and vaccinate these cats prior to them coming to your farm, you never need to worry about endless litters of kittens!

We also have “Social kitties” available for adoption HERE (These cats and kittens are NOT available for adoption through our Barn Cat Program. They have been worked with by our wonderful foster volunteers and are ready for their fur-ever homes. They are looking for indoor only homes.)

For more information on how the barn cat program works, feel free to contact us at 760-542-8509 or email us at

It’s The Pits is a 501c3 canine rescue that coordinates the fostering and adoption of dogs that haven’t yet found their permanent home. We specialize in American Staffordshire Terriers (“Am Staffs”), Staffordshire Bull Terriers (“Staffy’s”), and American Pit Bull Terriers, but will do our best to help all breeds, often by referral to other local rescues that specialize in that type of dog. We work alongside our fosters to give the dogs a temporary and loving home before they are placed into permanent homes. We rescue dogs from various shelters, evaluate them, ensure they are healthy, and then match them with the appropriate family. We take pride in matching the best dog for the individual family that contacts us. We do this by matching the activity level of the dog to the family’s needs, as well as making sure that the other pets in the home work well with the new addition to the pack. All of this is important in finding the forever home for our rescued pets.
