Forest Service Update: Public Meeting Scheduled for Plum Restoration Project

The Hat Creek Ranger District of the Lassen National Forest is preparing a proposal for the Plum Restoration Project. The project is a long-term, landscape-level restoration effort that is part of the larger Burney-Hat Creek Basins Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Project.

The Plum Restoration Project was considered in the CFLRP as an opportune area to restore watershed function, improve forest health, and reduce hazardous fuels. The desired outcome is a more resilient forest, better able to absorb disturbances like fire, disease, drought and insect attacks. The analysis area is approximately 18,253 acres and is located directly north of Highway 44 at the top of the Hat Creek Rim, approximately 1½ miles east of the unincorporated community of Old Station, CA.

The district will be hosting a public meeting to gather public input and help refine the proposed activities. The public meeting is scheduled for July 27th, 2017, at 7:00 PM at the Old Station Volunteer Fire Station.

“Public input will help better identify issues, concerns and opportunities that we might be able to incorporate into the Proposed Action,” said Hat Creek District Ranger Janine Book.

Copies of the draft project description are available at the Hat Creek District Office, 43225 E Hwy 299, Fall River Mills, CA 96028 or online at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/projects/lassen/landmanagement/projects .

For more information regarding the draft project description for this project contact Greg Mayer, District NEPA Planner, at (530)336-5521 or by e-mail at: [email protected].
