Scoping Letter DOI-BLM-OR-M060-2011-0009-EA Planning Completed
The Medford District Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Ashland Resource Area, is proposing the Howard Prairie Fuels Reduction project. The BLM proposes to reduce hazardous fuels by thinning understory vegetation on approximately 795 acres of conifer forests. The project is located about 15 miles northeast of Ashland, Oregon and adjacent to Howard Prairie Reservoir. The proposed fuels reduction work would reduce hazardous fuels to reduce the threat of large-scale wildfires and their potential to cause adverse effects on federally managed resources, private property, and homes adjacent to federally managed lands.
