Whiskeytown National Recreation Area will continue with prescribed fire activities within the East Boundary Project Area fromMarch 5th – March 13th. Approximately 25 - 90 acres of pine and oak woodland is planned for ignition if conditions are favorable for meeting project fuels reduction objectives and air quality requirements.  The project area is divided into “units” and each day that conditions are favorable one unit will be burned, with some limited fire activity and smoke expected 1-3 days afterward. The primary goals of the East Boundary Project, located above the community of Shasta, are to help create fire adapted local communities, enhance response to wildfires and produce resilient landscapes.

For additional information, please call: the Fire Management Office at Whiskeytown National Recreation Area at 530-242-3443.
