The Jacksonville Community Wildfire Protection Project is a strategic, ecologically-minded project collaboration to help reduce the threat of wildfire within selected areas of Jacksonville, Oregon and specific areas adjacent to the city.
The City of Jacksonville, Jacksonville Woodlands group and the local FireWise communities have joined forces with Lomakatsi and other members of the Rogue Forest Partners, including the local OSU Extension and Southern Oregon Forest Restoration Collaborative. Together they have raised over $1.5 million to assist landowners and the City of Jacksonville in reducing wildfire risk through ecological thinning and prescribed fire. Using this funding, landowners in the project area may be eligible for ecological fuels reduction on their property at no cost to them. All treatments are completely voluntary.

At this time, partners will only be treating select properties that are within the strategic project areas indicated within the yellow outlines on this map.
