Preparing Old-Growth for Fire

Friday, Jul. 10, 2020 at 11 am — Sunday, Jul. 12, 2020 at 3 pm


We will be out in the old-growth ponderosa pine forests on the south side of Mount Adams preparing areas for prescribed burning. This is a part of a long-term effort to protect the majestic, old-growth ponderosa pines and Doug firs in this unique part of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Volunteers will be using hard rakes and shovels to pull back the thick needle layers and ladder fuels that have built up over the past century due to fire suppression. Help us protect these magnificent trees!
