The US Forest Service is planning prescribed broadcast burns in the Forsythe Canyon area this Spring. The goals of the Forsythe II prescribed burn are to reduce hazardous fuels, improve forest health and wildlife habitat, and protect watersheds. When these burns are in progress, Coal Creek Canyon residents can expect to see a lot of smoke originating from the northwest direction. Our latest information is that these burns could start as early as this Friday or Saturday – depending on conditions. Below is a flyer from the Forest Service with a lot of details about location and what to expect.
