  • The Happy Camp/Oak Knoll Ranger District of the Klamath National Forest is hosting a field trip at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 5, to discuss the Goff fire fuels reduction project.
    The project is on National Forest lands affected by the 2012 Goff fire near the community of Seiad Valley, Calif. The goal of the project is to reduce hazardous fuels along California Highway 96 and Forest Road 48N20 (Seiad Creek Road) to improve future firefighting efforts and to protect key routes into and out of Seiad Valley.
    Attendees will tour three demonstration areas in the Walker Creek and Seiad Creek drainages with USFS fuels and vegetation management specialists. The proposed project prescriptions and intended outcome will be discussed, and attendees can provide input or voice concerns with the project and its design.
    Those interested in attending should meet at the USFS Seiad Station, 44630 State Highway 96, Seiad Valley, Calif. For more information about this project and the field trip, call Kevin Osborne 530-643-1732, or email at kjosborne@fs.fed.us.
