Volunteers Needed for Fire Rehabilitation Work
Volunteers interested in fire rehabilitation work can join the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for a project day Saturday, Oct. 18, in the Chappie-Shasta Off Highway Vehicle Area.
Members of the Redding Dirt Riders, Shasta Rock Rollers and Black Sheep 4x4 Club will be installing trail signs and spreading straw on fire-damaged slopes to help prevent erosion during the rainy season.
Volunteers can join the project by meeting at 8 a.m. at the Shasta Dam parking area. The BLM will provide tools and water. Volunteers should bring gloves and wear sturdy work boots.
The project is one of many scheduled to repair damaged caused by last summer’s Motion Fire that burned more than 28,000 acres in the off highway vehicle recreation area.
For more information, call the BLM Redding Field Office, (530) 224-2100.
