- Genesee Valley Watershed Improvement Project
- The Genesee Valley Watershed Improvement Project is a collaborative project aimed at reducing the risk of high-severity wildfire as well as taking steps toward restoring watershed and forest health through hand-thinning, hand piling, pile burning and broadcast burning of approx 839 acres of forested National Forest and adjacent private land. The purpose of the project is to implement hand thinning and a prescribed burn to reduce fuel loading within the project area to the point that fuels would burn at low to moderate severity during future wildfires. This reduction of fuel loads would help to reduce the threat of future wildfires from burning at high severity therefore potentially residents adjacent to the project area, protecting the watershed from degradation, and improving habitat values including late seral forest.
