Controlled Burn on Friday, December 12th Above Town

Controlled burning of brush piles to reduce fire danger in the City's watershed will take place Friday, December 12th. Smoke will be visible from much of town throughout the day. The burning is part of the Ashland Forest Resiliency Stewardship Project, a partnership between the City of Ashland, the U.S. Forest Service, Lomakatsi Restoration Project and The Nature Conservancy. Hikers and bike riders are encouraged to avoid the area on the west side of the watershed above the end of Granite Street and the top of Hitt Road during burning. This is the first of  burn projects to come as air quality conditions allow. Information regarding burning is recorded on the City of Ashland Smoke and Wildfire Hotline at 541-552-2490.
