Due to poor weather conditions in the Rogue Valley, all controlled burn operations have been canceled. A strong weather system is expected later this week and could allow for improved conditions. Ashland Forest Resiliency is committed to optimizing opportunities for controlled burns to reduce wildfire risk.
We have a watershed camera
that helps our partners and the community monitor conditions when we have burns. The camera can let you know where burns are happening. For our operation managers, they check the camera to ensure smoke is moving in the right direction. If you haven't seen the camera; check it on our website ashlandwatershed.org.
People sensitive to smoke should protect themselves should smoke affect the community. Smokewise Ashland
has resources to help protect you and your family.
Controlled burning is a critical part of creating a safer, more resilient landscape in the face of increasing wildfire risk due to climate change and overgrown forests. For more information and alerts, see below.
