More Controlled Burning Planned in Olema Valley for the Weeks of October 13 and October 20, 2008
Contact: Jennifer Chapman, 415-464-5133
Fire Management staff at Point Reyes National Seashore may conduct 2 additional small burns along Highway One sometime during the week of October 13 or the week of October 20 if weather conditions allow. The burn locations are both on the east side of Highway One — one is south of the Randall Trail, and the other is north of the McCurdy Trail. The burns are each approximately 40 acres in size and are part of the Highway One Fuelbreak. This fuelbreak aims to reduce the invasive French broom population and maintain open grasslands in between large areas of dense forest on Bolinas Ridge and Inverness Ridge where a wildfire would be very difficult to control. The target burn rotation for the Highway One fuelbreak is every other year. Fuel reduction along Highway One will strengthen the road as a line of defense if there is a wildfire, which will help to protect surrounding communities and park structures.
To receive an email when the burn day is confirmed, contact the park at 415-464-5133 or by email.
