Fall Work: Forest thinning operations are underway to create a safer and healthier watershed forest surrounding Ashland. You may see and hear crews working near roads and trails above town. Also, controlled burning is being used to reduce the unnatural buildup of fuel in our forests. Text WATERSHED (message line) to 888777 (recipient) to receive AFR project text updates and burn day alerts. Please report tents or litter in the forest. Camping and campfires are banned year-round to protect our watershed and community.
