Whiskeytown N.R.A. will plan to take advantage of the recent transition to warm and dry conditions to continue prescribed burning within the Buck Project. Pending air quality conditions, planned burning activities may begin as early at Feb. 8th, 2018 and continue intermittently until a weather pattern change back to wetter and cooler conditions. Current forecasts are indicating the persistence of dry conditions through at least the middle of the month.

The park plans to burn approximately 100 acres of the total 757-acre Buck Project area. The project was initiated during the spring of 2017 with a total of approximately 110 acres completed to date.

The Buck Project is located along the eastern park boundary bordering the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Swasey Recreation Area and private property west of Shasta and Centerville. The primary goal of the burn project is to reduce hazardous fuels near residential areas along the eastern boundary of the park. An additional goal is to help protect, maintain and restore natural landscapes and ecosystem function within this undeveloped area of the park. These goals are planned to be accomplished through a series of prescribed fire treatments over the next 2-4 years.

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

Staying hot and hazy today, but relief from the heat is on the way for the middle of this week. We'll also have the potential for mountain thunderstorms on Wednesday. The heat returns this weekend.
