Ashland Forest Resiliency Tour on Friday, May 5th from 2 pm to 5 pm

Ashland Forest Resiliency (AFR) Project recently completed a maintenance controlled burn along the Wonder Trail. Join us on a tour in the Ashland watershed to learn more about how controlled burning is reintroducing the long-absent role of mild fires for reducing the summer wildfire threat on public and private land with AFR and the City’s Ashland Forest Plan. Since 2010, AFR partners and the City have worked on over 13,500 acres to remove overly-dense trees and flammable brush, creating opportunities to maintain our forests with safely conducted controlled burns…proactively returning good fire to the landscape.

RSVP to Attend: To plan for transportation, please register to attend the tour.
Tour Topics will Include:
  1. Fire History and Current Challenges
  2. Fire Effects Monitoring and Maintenance Burning
  3. How Controlled Burning is Re-establishing the Natural Fire Cycle
  4. Challenges for Controlled Burning at Scale and Planning for Smoke
Learn More about Projects Before the Tour
Burn plans are currently approved on thousands of acres and fire managers will use proactive fire planning technology, called Potential Operational Delineations, or PODs, to prioritize burn areas, along with conditions as measured on the ground each week.
