Controlled Burn Continues Near Wagner Creek
Smoke may be visible this morning between Ashland and Talent when Lomakatsi Restoration Project leads a team to burn piles on private land in upper Wagner Creek, between Talent and Ashland on Wednesday, November 29th. You may see smoke from town and down valley. This work is in the critical interface between the watershed and our communities, a key area for fire protection. Thanks to NRCS for funding this partnership with The Nature Conservancy, the City of Ashland, and Lomakatsi.
