Forest Service offices closed Labor Day

All Plumas National Forest offices will be closed on Monday, Sept. 7, in observance of Labor Day. All offices will resume normal (virtual) operating hours on Tuesday, Sept. 8.

We are asking our visitors to do their part over the Labor Day holiday by:

  • Recreating responsibly and close to home whenever possible;
  • Maintaining at least six feet distancing from others, do not gather in groups and please follow
    the latest guidance from officials;
  • Pack it in; pack it out. Make sure you take away any trash or waste that you create while
    visiting.
  • Cell phone reception can be “hit and miss” in rural areas. Make sure you have left a travel
    schedule with routes with friends or family before you travel.
  • Forest roads can be narrow and winding. Slow down, especially when roads are dusty.

For more information on tips for planning ahead, please visit the Be Outdoor Safe webpage at https://www.beoutdoorsafe.org/.

As we’ve seen across California this summer, wildfires and smoke are a serious concern for everyone. Please follow all posted campfire restrictions. As a reminder, ALL campfires outside of pre-approved, designated campsites, are STRICTLY PROHIBITED. Additionally, please note that fireworks are NOT permitted on any National Forest.

For a list of open, developed recreation facilities and those that allow campfires, please see the Forest website at http://www.fs.usda.gov/plumas .

Campfire permits are available online at www.preventwildfireca.org/Campfire-Permit/.

Visitors are also urged to take the precautions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) along with local health and safety guidance.

Additional forest information, including that about active fires is available on Facebook.
