Public Invited to Goff Fire Field Trip


Yreka, Calif.– The Happy Camp/Oak Knoll Ranger District of the Klamath National Forest is hosting a field trip this Saturday, May 3rd at 11:00 am to discuss the Goff Fire Fuels Reduction Project. The project is on National Forest System lands affected by the 2012 Goff Fire near the community of Seiad Valley, CA. The goal of the project is to reduce hazardous fuels along California Highway 96 and Forest Road 48N20 (Seiad Creek Road) to improve future firefighting efforts, and to protect key travel routes into and out of Seiad Valley.

Interested members of the public will have the chance to tour three demonstration areas in the Walker Creek and Seiad Creek drainages with USFS fuels and vegetation management specialists. The proposed project prescriptions, and intended outcome will be discussed. Attendees will have the opportunity to provide input or voice concerns with the project and its design.

The field trip is planned for Saturday, May 3rd at 11:00 am. Those interested in attending should meet at the USFS Seiad Station, 44630 State Highway 96, and Seiad Valley, CA. For more information about this project and the field trip, call Kevin Osborne at (530) 643-1732, or email at
