Current Work: Forest thinning operations are underway to create a safer and healthier watershed forest surrounding Ashland. You may see and hear crews working near roads and trails above town. We are using controlled burns to reduce the unnatural buildup of fuel in our forests. For burn day alerts: Text WATERSHED (message line) to 888777 (recipient). Please report tents or litter in the forest. Camping and campfires are banned year-round to protect our watershed and community.
