City of Ashland Burn off Lithia Loop Road - Friday, April 26th

The City of Ashland will conduct two controlled underburns starting at noon just above the swimming reservoir at the end of Granite Street in the lower Ashland Watershed off USFS Road 2060 (Lithia Loop Road).  

Underburns mimic the role of low burning, natural fires that were used by the Shasta and Takelma tribes for thousands of years in what is now Ashland. Underburns cycle nutrients, reduce fire danger, and maintain many years of work invested in restoring open, healthy forests. The City of Ashland has been a pioneer on our community forests since the mid 1990ís in implementing active stewardship of our watershed forests to protect and conserve our community and drinking water source.
