Controlled Burning Today: Mt. Ashland Ski Road

UPDATE: East winds and low mixing heights were possibly going to blow smoke toward the community so, we are holding off on today's burning. We'll see about getting these burns done tomorrow when conditions improve.

Today, Tuesday November 16th, Lomakatsi Restoration Project is managing two controlled burns on behalf of the Ashland Forest Resiliency off Mt. Ashland Ski Road and Colestin Road. Smoke could be visible from parts of Interstate 5 and is not expected to impact town or roads and trails. Check weather and smoke on the watershed camera

Learn more about why burning is so critical in a recently held prescribed fire forum.  

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.

Our Smokewise Ashland site has all the resources you need to stay healthy when smoke is in the air. Also, learn where AFR Partners will conduct burns in 2021-2022 on the controlled burn map
