New date set for Goff Fire Fuels Reduction Project trip

 Posted: 12:15 PM April 22, 2014

A public field trip to discuss the Goff Fire Fuels Reduction Project has been rescheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, May 3.

The field trip hosted by the Happy Camp/Oak Knoll Ranger District of the Klamath National Forest will showcase efforts to reduce hazardous fuels along California Highway 96 and Seiad Creek Road. The efforts follow the 2012 Goff fire near the community of Seiad Valley.

Fuels reduction is intended to improve future firefighting efforts and protect key travel routes in and out of the valley. Members of the public can tour three demonstration areas in the Walker Creek and Seiad Creek drainages, accompanied by U.S. Forest Service fuels and vegetation management specialists.

Those interested in attending should meet at 10:30 a.m. at the USFS Seiad Station, 44630 Highway 96, Seiad Valley, Calif. For additional information, contact Kevin Osborne at 530-643-1732 or by email at
