Fire season reminders

Aug 05, 2016
Fire season began a bit later this year thanks to a great snowpack and spring rain. However, it's important for all of us to remember to take precautions when visiting Land Trust protected lands.


From Neff Road in Bend to Crater Lake National Park, fires are popping up all over Oregon. Thanks to a great snowpack this winter and spring rain, fire season began a bit later this year. So we thought it might be time for another reminder about fire danger, and how to protect the lands we love from getting scorched.

Please remember to take precautions when visiting Land Trust Preserves, and other public lands in Central Oregon. It only takes a spark!

Please:

  • Do not drive through areas where a hot car can ignite dry grass or weeds. (Read this Bend Bulletin article and find out why)
  • Do not park in areas where a hot car can ignite dry grass or weeds.
  • No campfires or smoking at Land Trust Preserves.

Finally, if you do spot a fire (or an abandoned, smoldering campfire) please report it immediately with a call to 911. Thank you!
