PRINEVILLE, OR -- Forest managers plan more prescribed burns, this week. If conditions allow, they’ll ignite a 148-acre area Monday on the Crescent Ranger District of the Deschutes National Forest. The units are about a mile north of the Black Rock gravel pit.
Crews also hope to burn slash from forest thinning operations in the Ochoco National Forest. “Canyon 66” is a 100-acre unit, five miles northeast of Ochoco Forest Camp, planned for Monday. On Tuesday, they expect to light the 200-acre “AMP 1” unit, 12 miles northeast of Prineville.
