Yuki Wilderness Firescape Tour and Cultural Resource Protection

On Saturday October 22, the Eel River Recovery Project (in cooperation with the Upper Lake/Covelo Ranger District of the Mendocino National Forest and the Bureau of Land Management Arcata Field Office) organized a fuels reduction and firescape education day in the Barnes Ranch exclusion of the Yuki Wilderness, which is jointly managed by BLM and USFS.  A total of 21 participants (ranchers, ERRP volunteers, Mendocino NF Fire Crew, and BLM representatives) worked together to remove brush and other “ladder fuels” by hand. A discussion of restoration of natural fire regimes to the Yuki Wilderness accompanied lunch and the work.
