Campfire Safety Prevents Wildfires

Clovis, CA June 02, 2017 – With the Memorial Day Weekend behind us, schools will be letting out for the summer and visits to the Sierra National Forest (NF) will increase. Activities such as camping, backpacking, and picnicking in the great outdoors often include the enjoyment of a campfire.  

The Sierra NF would like to remind our visitors to be responsible in their enjoyment and use of a campfire. Not only will it serve the purpose of providing warmth in the cool evenings, or roasting marshmallows, but it is part of the camping experience to sit around the fire and enjoy the company of those with you.

SB 249 Coalition Letter to Key Legislators

Save the California OHV Program has been a high level topic for several months.  Competing legislation has been introduced with State Senate and Assembly hearing held and more to come.

SB-249 was introduced.  The legislation (as introduced) is very punitive towards OHV recreation and would basically destroy the program.

AB-1077 was introduced.  This legislation seeks to renew the program, as is, making no substantial changes to a program that has functioned for more the 40 years.  With the periodic re-authorizations required (last one SB-742 in 2007), the program is well managed and always within its budget.
