Controlled Burning Continues

The Ashland Forest Resiliency Stewardship Project (AFR) will conduct additional controlled burns this week. Slash piles near Lamb Saddle are scheduled for ignition on Thursday, March 30th.  Smoke will be visible from many areas of the community. The existing closure for helicopter logging remains in effect; however, trails not in the closure will remain open but may be impacted by smoke temporarily. 
 
Stay Informed  

Why we Burn?  Controlled burns under the right conditions reduce the risk of severe summer wildfires and dense smoke while protecting our forests, water supply, economy, and community. Crews from the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest, Grayback Forestry, and Lomakatsi Restoration Project are managing the burn.
