Here's a few photos from today's prescribed fire in Shevlin Park. Prescribed burns are meant to maintain and restore forest health and reduce the potential negative effects of a severe wildfire in Shevlin Park. The Deschutes National Forest led the burn. The prescribed fire should be completed in a day or two. Once it is safe to reopen the park, signage will be removed and areas will be available for recreation. During the active burning period nearby residents and park visitors will see and smell smoke. People are encouraged to keep their doors and windows closed during the burning and the evening following the burning to reduce impacts from smoke. Most smoke should move out of the area within the day though there may be some smoldering on the following day or two. Firefighters will monitor the area for several days following the burn.
