Reading Fire Tour and Meeting Set

Filed under: Uncategorized — waltblog @ 7:40 pm

FALL RIVER MILLS — The Hat Creek Ranger District will host a public meeting and field tour to review the impacts of the Reading Fire on public lands within the Forest boundaries.
The event is planned for Tuesday, December 4 beginning at 10:00 a.m. in the training room at the Hat Creek Work Center. Following the public meeting, a field tour of the Reading Fire area will give participants the opportunity to view firsthand some of the impacts of the fire. The meeting at the Work Center will take place even if weather or field conditions do not allow for the tour. The Hat Creek Work Center is on Highway 89, approximately 10 miles south of the junction with Highway 299.
Representatives of the Hat Creek Ranger District will be available to discuss potential treatment activities, such as reforestation and restoration efforts through the removal or cutting of fire-filled or fire-injured trees, and planting of seedlings.
Some travel will occur on gravel or unpaved roads so SUVs or high clearance vehicles will be necessary, and carpooling is encouraged to keep the number of vehicles to a minimum. Participants should dress in layers for cold weather, bring water and lunch, and wear foot gear for walking on uneven terrain.
Call Mary Price at the Hat Creek Ranger District office at 336-5521 or by sending an email to mpprice@fs.fed.us. It is important to also include contact information in case of a weather- elated cancellation.
