The U.S. Forest Service is proposing prescribed burns in the lower portion of the Boulder Creek drainage of the Sequoia National Forest to control wildfires and manage the wilderness.
The proposal would burn 6,000 to 9,000 acres of the Boulder Creek Drainage area -- the majority of which have seen 100-plus years of fire exclusion, spokeswoman Denise Alonzo said. Comments are welcome for the Boulder Creek Fuels Restoration Project proposal.
The environmental document is available at the Hume Lake Ranger District Office, 35860 E. Kings Canyon Road in Dunlap.
