Blue Ridge Ecological Reserve Prescribed Burn, Grouse Creek Unit
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Department of Fish and Game Ecological Reserve
Document Description
The Department proposes to employ a controlled prescribed burn of the 1,061.45-acre Grouse Creek unit; one of three Units which comprise the Blue Ridge Ecological Reserve. The density and distribution of understory on the Grouse Creek Unit has reached a point where active management of the site is necessary to re-establish and sustain conditions for a suitable mosaic of habitat. The fire will benefit wildlife habitats by converting to a lower successional stage in the understory. This is accomplished by eliminating dense, decadent stands of chamise; and by opening up dense live oak thickets. Anticipated duration of the burn is approximately 12 hours. The controlled burn will be facilitated by CAL FIRE, Tulare County.
