A #Prescribedfire project will begin today on Poker Jim Ridge (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Sheldon - Hart NWRC) during favorable weather conditions. A total of 1500 acres are currently planned for treatment. Drift smoke may be visible for the next few days near Plush, Oregon.

After many years of fire exclusion, an ecosystem that needs periodic fire becomes unhealthy. Trees are stressed by overcrowding; fire-dependent species disappear; and flammable fuels build up and become hazardous. However, the right fire at the right place at the right time helps maintain healthy forests, communities and watersheds.
