Ashland residents exploring the watershed may see smoke rising from the Ashland watershed today, Friday, Nov. 3, due to a controlled burn, the city of Ashland announced this morning.
Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest will manage the controlled burn in the Bull Gap recreation area. Smoke should be expected on the upper Bull Gap trail and U.S. Forest Service Road 2080, according to an Everbridge alert sent by the city of Ashland.
Smoke is not expected to be visible in Ashland due to the high elevation location of the burn, but could be visible if clearing allows.
The burn is being conducted on behalf of the Ashland Forest Resiliency plan.
