Document Description
The McConnell Foundation (Foundation) proposes a Hazardous Fuel Reduction Project with two primary activities in western Shasta County, in the footprint of the 2018 Carr Fire between Whiskeytown Lake and Redding. (1) The first activity entails approximately 1,225 acres of hazard fuel clearing in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) on private property. (2) The project will establish a 956 acre landscape treatment along the ridge between Mary Lake and Lower Springs from Highway 299 West to Swasey Drive in Shasta. This fuel treatment will provide significant barrier in the WUI where the City of Redding borders the community of Shasta.
