.With the objective of identifying the sites of greatest risk to the La Primavera Forest in terms of forest fires and coordinating actions to reduce their impact, monitoring and surveillance tours began in the periphery of the Natural Protected Area (NPA), which will be carried out from March to June in the municipalities of Zapopan, Tlajomulco de Zúñiga, Tala and El Arenal. These inspections, in which agencies from the three levels of government are participating, began on March 2 and will end on June 8, with the aim of detecting properties that receive debris and organic material, socializing with owners regarding the management of waste and fuels.
