GOLETA, CA….Los Padres National Forest officials today announced plans to launch a series of prescribed burn projects over the next several months to eliminate piled brush and mechanically treated vegetation on the Santa Lucia Ranger District.

This process will involve crews burning piles of vegetation in order to remove hazardous fuel loads and improve the overall health of the forest. The project will commence when weather conditions and air quality are suitable for safely burning these fuels. The brush was masticated and piled during thinning projects around administrative sites throughout the District and on the Figueroa Mountain area.

The burn projects will be conducted at a number of different sites, with the bulk of the work to be done on the Figueroa Mountain Recreational Area located a few miles northwest of the community of Los Olivos.

Burning may begin as early as November 1. If you have questions about the projects, please contact Santa Lucia Fire Management Officer Jim Smith at (805) 925-9538.
