Update on Controlled Burning for Ashland Watershed

Last week we had 130 acres complete for spring underburns around the No Candies Trail on the west side of the Ashland Watershed. Prescribed fires reduce the risk of wildfires by burning away fuels before they accumulate to dangerous levels. By burning frequently we get many mild, controllable fires rather than one severe, uncontrollable fire. This pattern also mimics how the Ashland Watershed burned naturally for thousands of years. The Nature Conservancy in Oregon provided the picture below of mild fire. Without the research of The Nature Conservancy and support of our partners U.S. Forest Service- Rogue River-Siskiyou National ForestCity of Ashland Oregon and Lomakatsi Restoration Project the Ashland Forest Resiliency Stewardship Project would not be possible. We want to thank the community for your patience as we get this important work complete.
