Commenting On Klamath NF's Fire Recovery Plans UPDATED with Open House Plans

KQED San Francisco

The fires are cold, but the scars remain.

Several fires burned large swaths of the Klamath National Forest during the summer and fall of 2014.

Now the Forest Service proposes rehabilitation projects in those areas: The Westside Fire Recovery Project.

The Draft Environmental Impact Statement is out and comments are open until the middle of April.

Forest officials join us with details on goals and process.
