Prescribed Burn Planned Near Whisketown

A burn project that began last spring in the Centerville area west of Redding will resume this week. The Buck Project is being conducted by the National Park Service at the eastern edge of Whiskeytown Park where it borders the BLM’s Swasey Recreation Area and private property. The primary goal is to create an effective fuel break and protect homes. It’ll also help restore natural landscapes. Starting Monday the plan is to burn 220 acres of the 757 acre project. Wetter and cooler weather is expected toward the end of the week as the burning wraps up. Because of the ridgetop location, smoke will be very visible from the Redding area.
