Fire Management Planning (2010)
The 2010 draft Fire Management Plan (FMP) is similar to the 2005 plan (see above) that has guided fire management actions in the national park for the past five years. Similar actions in the 2010 draft FMP include increasing the total acres of prescribed fire from about 4,400 acres to about 6,800 acres, with new prescribed fire units in the Crescent and Enderts Beach areas south of Crescent City to restore grasslands and reduce alien invasive plant species; elarging shaded fuel breaks near Orick and Hiouchi; and constructing a new break around the Howland Hills Outdoor School in Del Norte Country.

Did You Know?

Did you see that bullet cross the treetops? That's the marbled murrelet! The robin-sized seabird nests on the branches of old-growth conifer trees and flies to and from the ocean at 60 miles per hour. In the ocean, it feeds on fish. This bird is listed as state-endangered and federally-threatened.
