USFS: Whiskeytown National Recreation Area Prescribed Burn Today


 Forest officials plan to continue controlled burns on Wednesday of about 40 acres of pine and oak woodland at Whiskeytown National Recreation Area.
The burn will be between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., with some limited burndown and smoke expected an additional one to three days after.
The park started burn activities in the area Jan. 22 and completed a 15-acre unit above Old Shasta. The activities are part of a park strategy to improve neighboring communities’ resilience and local fire agencies’ ability to respond to wildfires.
For more information, contact the Fire Management Office at 242-3443.
