The Prineville District Bureau of Land Management will soon begin work on a vegetation management project about six miles west of Redmond. Jake Akerberg with the BLM says they plan to treat up to 1300 acres. "We're starting out in the Eagle Crest unit, and that's around Eagle Crest itself. And the primary goal out there is to reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire in the area. And what the plan is; is we're going to be going out there and removing some of the younger juniper to remove the chance of continuous ground fire could move through the area is the overall goal." Akerberg says the felled junipers will be available for firewood cutting. He says right now they are in the planning stages; identifying areas that should be avoided because of environmental concerns. But they plan for the project to begin in September, and will last for several years. There will be a community meeting to explain the program on Monday, June 27th at 5 p.m. at the Eagle Crest Conference Center.
