No Controlled Burns this Weekend: Avoid Fell on Knee and Wonder Trails

THANK YOU! 
Ashland Forest Resiliency partners recognize this is not a partnership of four rather, it's one with the community also, making five! We sincerely appreciate your patience with smoke this week from controlled burning.

We enjoyed some nice weather this week and got several acres of controlled underburning completed around Reeder Reservoir, source of our drinking water. 

AVOID WONDER and FELL ON KNEE
There will not be any burning this weekend, however, there can be some lingering smoke around the Wonder and Fell on Knee trails. We recommend avoiding Fell on Knee and Wonder trails this weekend until crews can check the area for snags and potential hazards.

EXPLORE ASHLAND'S WATERSHED
One of the important values we are reducing wildfire risk for is the 50 miles of trails beloved by people near and far. The Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest has made the Ashland Watershed Trail Map available free through the popular phone application Avenza

WHY WE CONDUCT BURNS
A recent article in the Ashland Daily Tidings explains more about why we use controlled burns. See 'Fighting Fire with Fire' for details.
