As part of our fuels reduction efforts for wildfire safety, Ashland Parks and Recreation Commission (APRC) will be burning TODAY: Monday (3/15/21). APRC is managing the controlled burn in Siskiyou Mountain Park (SMP) above Park Street. No trails or roads will be closed. You may see or smell smoke around the lower trails in SMP during the pile ignition.
