Controlled Burning Tomorrow: Bull Gap Recreation Area and Mt. Ashland Ski Road

Friday November 5th, two controlled burns are planned for the east side of the Ashland watershed.
  1. Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest is managing a controlled burn off USFS 2080 and 2080-200 roads. Bull Gap and Missing Links trails may have smoke. Please see alternative recreation routes here.
  2. Lomakatsi Restoration Project is managing a controlled burn on behalf of the Ashland Forest Resiliency off the Mt. Ashland Ski Road. Smoke is not expected to impact roads, trails or the community due to the location and favorable weather. Check weather and smoke on the watershed camera

JOIN US: Next week at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday November 10th, AFR partners will host a Zoom meeting with the community for an overview of the controlled burn season. Register here to learn where we will be managing controlled burning and more about how prescribed fire improves forest health. 


Click here for a video about proactive fire planning to learn how a little smoke from controlled burning is helping make our forests healthier and our community safer in the face of increasingly hot and dry summers.
