Controlled Burns will Continue on Wednesday, March 21st, 2018
A controlled burn will be conducted at the following location by the Ashland Forest Resiliency Stewardship Project:
- East side of Watershed - Today, a controlled burn is planned on upper Tolman Creek Road at the Eastview Trailhead (Road 2080-700). Smoke will impact Eastview Trailhead and should be avoided, however, the trail remains open. Smoke will be visible from several parts of Ashland including Interstate 5, Ashland Street and Siskiyou BLVD.
Controlled burns to reduce fuels and the risk of wildfire in our community were managed by several organizations including: Ashland Forest Resiliency Partners, Lomakatsi Restoration Project, Ashland Parks and Recreation and the U.S. Forest Service Rogue River-Siskiyou Mountain District.
