ARCATA, Calif. – The Bureau of Land Management is resuming forest thinning and fuel reduction work on Monday, April 22, along Shelter Cove Road in the King Range National Conservation Area. Drivers may experience 15-minute delays when chippers are used in the three-mile-long construction area about eight miles from Shelter Cove.

“This work is aimed at improving fire resilience and forest health,” said BLM Arcata Field Manager Collin Ewing. “We are asking anyone visiting the area to be patient as this critical work is completed.”

The project is part of an ongoing project funded by a CAL FIRE forest health grant. More information is available from the King Range office in Whitethorn by calling 707-986-5400, or by contacting the BLM Arcata Field Office, 707-825-2300.
