Willow Creek Fire Safe Council Seeking Active Participants

Fire Safety and Forest Management of USFS Projects on Agenda

PRESS RELEASE, Willow Creek Fire Safe Council

The Willow Creek Fire Safe Council (WCFSC) is asking community members if they are interested in participating in community meetings to discuss fire safety and forest managment of U.S. Forest Service (USFS) projects around the communities of the Lower Trinity.

Last year, the WCFSC sponsored a series of community meetings to discuss the Forest Service project, Waterman West Integrated Vegetation Managment Project (Waterman West). The project includes thinning forest stands and treating fuels along strategic ridgelines, including Waterman, Campbell, and Baldwin Ridges, located north of the communities of Willow Creek, Salyer, and Hawkins Bar.

The USFS has been inventorying the area east of the Waterman West and would like to develop a similar project to thin forest stands and treat the fuels on the eastern end of Waterman Ridge.

The WCFSC will be sponsoring another series of meetings in the spring and early summer of 2011, so the community can become familiar with the proposed project and offer comments to the USFS early in the project planning process.

If you are interested or want to be informed about the schedule of meetings, please contact Joe O’Hara, presidents of Fire Safe Council (530) 629-3438.
