Saturday, October 18, 2003, 9AM to 3PM, USFS bus tour of the 21,000 acre Davis fire near Davis Lake
Bring warm clothing, camera, lunch and water for this bus tour led by USFS experts. Reservations required, by phone to Crescent Ranger District, 541-433-3200.

Note: Call the Crescent Ranger District. Let them know you would like to take a similar tour when offered. I was shocked at the damage and wanted to know what they planned to do with the dead trees. Nothing else was left but Mazama ash where the fire burned the hottest. What do you think should be done? --Bob Speik


Saturday, July 9, 2005, FREE bus tour of the Five Buttes Fuels Reduction Demonstration Project with Deschutes National Forest Planners
This 160,000-acre Project has been chosen as one of seven, nation wide, to maintain or improve stands of trees more than 21 inches in diameter, by treating smaller trees and brush. Call Bob Speik for details at 541-385-0445. See a similar tour of the Davis Lake fire.
