Southern California Wildfire Recovery. Much of Point Mugu State Park and Rancho Sierra Vista burned in the May 2013 Spring Fire. Post-fire landscapes in southern California are probably one of the most dramatic examples of vegetation recovery from apparent fire destruction, and photo series are one of the most effective educational tools to show this kind of change over time. New technology allows park visitors to become citizen scientists and actively participate in the collection of data to document this kind of change and to see the results in the future.
