Controlled Burn Planned for Thursday in the Ashland Watershed

On February 10th the AFR Partners plan to do a prescribed underburn on the east side of the Ashland Watershed in the Winburn Ridge area.  Up to 80 acres could be burned depending on conditions and smoke disperal. There should be no impact to public roads or trails. Thanks for the continued patience as we continue to do the important work of removing these excess fuels from the Ashland watershed for a safer community and more resilient ecosystem. You can find more information about burning at and smoke information at

Underburn conditions are associated with warmer and drier weather like we've had and is forecasted this week. This burning is a critical piece of our ongoing work to prepare for hotter and drier summers associated with a changing climate. 

Additionally, feel free to check out the following link for our online burn map showing location and status of our burn units.
