14A Wednesday, March 31, 2010 Feather River Bulletin Plumas National Forest begins prescribed burns Favorable weather con- ditions will allow spring prescribed burning to begin soon on the Plumas National Forest. The purpose of burning is to reduce the hazardous fuels that accumulate in the forest and minimize the potential impact if a wildfire occurs during the summer. Burns are also used to re- store native vegetation such as beargrass and to improve S NO general forest health. Most of the planned under- burning will complete Herger-Feinstein Quincy Library Group fuelbreak work within defensible fuel profile zones. Smoke from these projects will be visible from many parts of the county. Fire management personnel work with the Redding Fire Weath- er Center, the Northeast Air Alliance, local air quality managers and adjacent federal and state agencies to reduce smoke impacts on communities. Even with these precau- tions, some smoke may settle into the valleys during the evenings and early morning hours until atmospheric conditions allow for smoke dispersal. Opportunities to burn are typically limited to several weeks in the spring and fall and are dependent on favor- able weather conditions, fuel moisture levels and the avail- ability of fire crews. The Mt. Hough District has approximately 300 acres to burn, mostly in the Meadow Valley and American Valley vicinity. Smoke will be visible from Quincy and Meadow Valley. The Feather River District has approximately 300 acres to burn in the Brush Creek and Challenge vicinity. Smoke will be visible from ,roy,lie, Chic, and uba County. The Beckwourth Ranger District has approximately 650 acres to burn in the Lake Davis, Red Clover Valley, Portola and Clio vicinity.
