Missing Links Trail Open, Controlled Burning Continues West of Ashland
Missing Links Trail Open
The Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest completed a controlled burn in an area critical for reducing fire risk to our municipal water supply. Missing Links Trail is open once again. There will still be increased traffic and dust along Lower Missing Links Trail in the area south of Four Corners as crews monitor and finish up the work. Thank you to the crews for your dedication to community safety and improved forest health.
Controlled Burning Continues West of Ashland
Grayback Forestry, Inc. will again burn 2.5 miles west of Ashland on Tuesday, April 20th. This property is part of a developing network of controlled burns that will create safer conditions for fire response and the community this summer. There's still a long way to go, but this is a critical piece!
Smoke from the controlled burn will again be highly visible. We want to thank everyone for your patience, we understand smoke is not always a pleasant sight after the fires in Southern Oregon but we are pressing forward with prescribed fire due to its significant benefits for nature and safety of the community. We appreciate all the fire professionals on the controlled burns who work so hard on our behalf.
Funding partners include The Nature Conservancy in Oregon, the U.S. Forest Service and the citizens of Ashland. Learn more about why prescribed fire is so important and get project updates at www.ashlandwatershed.org.
