Summary: Prescribe burn 44 BLM agricultural fields along the John Day River and Bridge Creek between Mitchell and Burnt Ranch, and 8 fields along the John Day River north of Clarno. Between November 1st and April 15th, approximately 50-250 acres of these fields will be burned annually over the next 10 years. Bridge Creek agricultural fields total 428 acres and Clarno fields total 128 acres for a total acreage of 556 acres. Ignition will be by hand. Existing barriers, such as roads and waterways, will be used for contingency lines. The prescribed fires will be conducted in the fall, winter, and early spring seasons when fire behavior will be more favorable and the risk of fire spread outside of the fields will be minimal to non-existent.
