  • A public field trip for the Goff Fire Fuels Reduction Project, originally scheduled for 11 a.m. today, has been postponed, Klamath National Forest officials said.
    A new date has not been set yet, but public notice will be made when a date is chosen.
    The field trip will focus on lands affected by the 2012 Goff fire near Seiad Valley, Calif., and on the project intended to reduce hazardous fuels along California Highway 96 and Seiad Creek Road. The project aims to improve future firefighting efforts and protect key travel routes in and out of the Seiad Valley, officials said.
    Participants will tour three demonstration sites in the Walker Creek and Seiad Creek drainages with U.S. Forest Service fuels and vegetation management specialists.
    Jon Peters will talk about the origins of whales at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 10, at ScienceWorks, 1500 E. Main St., Ashland.
    Peters will show evidence detailing how whales have evolved from a deer-like ancestor to the aquatic forms we know today. Evidence comes from newly discovered fossils, the many anatomical features of living whales, and newly revealed DNA comparisons between whales and hippos.
    Admission costs $10 at the door; free to students with ID.
    The event is sponsored by the Jefferson Center.
