Stewardship coalition to hold public tour of project within Dixie Fire footprint

Mark your calendars for Friday, Sept. 9, the Feather River Stewardship Coalition is hosting a public field tour that will highlight lessons learned from the Plumas National Forest’s Franks Valley project area within the Dixie Fire. Discussion will focus on forest management, the success and limitations of treatments, long-term forest change, and strategies for recovery.

The tour starts at 9 a.m. at the Mt. Hough Ranger District parking lot (39696 Hwy 70, Quincy). Participants will receive an overview of the fuel reduction work recently undertaken around the District office before caravanning to the Franks Valley project area. Participants will need to bring sturdy shoes and water. Lunch and snacks will be provided for those who RSVP by Sept. 6 (email [email protected] to RSVP). The tour will conclude in Quincy by 4 p.m.

The Feather River Stewardship Coalition is a collaboration between Plumas National Forest, the Plumas County Fire Safe Council, the Feather River Resource Conservation District and stakeholders working to improve the ecosystem health on private and public lands within the Feather River Watershed.
