Re: Wilder Ranch control burns planned
The California Department of Parks and Recreation is planning a series of control burns at Wilder Ranch State Park during the week of November 6. The prescribed fires, which will be set as conditions permit, may involve as many as 300 acres of park lands.
These burns are being conducted to reduce the threat of wildfire and toenhance natural resources within the park.
As with any control burn in the vicinity of UCSC, there is a possibility of smoke drifting through the campus. Persons who may experience health problems related to smoke exposure should take appropriate precautions.
For further information, please contact UCSC's Fire Department at 459-3473.
