Join us on Friday, December 8 from 10am-1:30pm for a Community Tour of the Upper Applegate Watershed Restoration Project! Staff from U.S. Forest Service- Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest, Lomakatsi, Southern Oregon Forest Restoration Collaborative, and other members of the Rogue Forest Partners will lead a field visit to two sites within the project area and share about how this long-term community-based project is improving forest health and reducing the risk of severe wildfire to the ecosystem and Applegate Valley communities. We’ll focus on the commercial thinning aspect of the project, where small- to medium-diameter Douglas-fir removed as part of the ecologically-based prescriptions will be sold to a local mill, with revenue reinvested into additional restoration treatments including prescribed fire. No RSVP necessary. Click on the event for details. We hope to see you there!
