Habib Ranch Fire Prevention Training Site
NOE - Notice of Exemption
CAL FIRE/Butte County Fire seeks to develop and promote on an annual basis Fire protection training opportunities under direction of the unit training bureau. The project consists of routine maintenance of existing roads with dozers and hand cutting, lop and scatter, and piling of brush and trees 12 inches dbh and smaller on lands within the Habib Ranch ownership. This project will allow maintenance of an existing road for better ingress/egress of firefighting resources. Any project operation would lie within the footprint of individual areas (from 1 to 2 acres). All cutting, piling, lopping, and scattering work will be done by hand labor, with any dozer activity to be restricted to currently existing road. There will not be any new road or dozer fire-line construction.
