Prescribed fire planned at Green Mountain

Feb 21, 2014 6:16 PM

Starting today until February 28th, the Shasta Lake Unit of the National Recreation Area on the Shasta-Trinity National Forest will be conducting a prescribed fire to remove ground fuels on National Forest System lands in the area of Green Mountain.

The fire will create smoke that will be visible from many areas in the eastern portion of Shasta Lake, along Interstate 5 near Bridge Bay, and the Silverthorn and Jones Valley areas.

Dead vegetation on the ground and ladder fuels that occur between ground fuels and tree crowns will be reduced, within the prescribed fire area making future fire suppression efforts safer while enhancing habitat for species such as Bald Eagles, Shasta Salamanders, Deer, Elk, and Turkey.
