Two Controlled Burns Planned for Tuesday, December 3rd

Fire crews from the Ashland Forest Resiliency Project will burn piles in two locations on Tuesday, December 3rd. The U.S. Forest Service will lead a burn covering 106 acres along the 2060-200 road in the Ashland Watershed and Lomakatsi Restoration Project will again burn in the Ashland Mine Road area, adding 35 acres. Trails impacted will be the west side 2060 road (above 2060-200 junction), the Horn Gap Trail, and No Candies trail. We recommend avoid the upper west side of the watershed tomorrow due to smoke. Smoke will be highly visible from the community and many parts of the valley. Here's a map of the burn units (in red). 

Controlled burning is a critical part of creating a safer, more resilient landscape in the face of climate change. For more information and alerts, see below.

More Information

People sensitive to smoke should protect themselves should smoke affect the community. Smokewise Ashland has resources to help protect you and your family.

AFR is a ten-year stewardship project designed to reduce the risk of severe wildfire in the watershed and to protect water quality, older forests, wildlife, people, property and quality of life.
