La Pine, Oregon — Prineville District Bureau of Land Management (BLM) fire specialists are planning to burn piles of woody debris in La Pine State Park this Saturday, March 31, 2007. The piles are located on the north end of La Pine State Park near Forest Lane and west of the Deschutes River.
This project is a collaboration of efforts between the BLM, the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) and Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. Volunteers thinned several acres of La Pine State Park adjacent to homes along Forest Lane homes to reduce hazardous fuels, creating approximately 17 piles of debris.
