Methodist Front Wildfire Mitigation and Forest Health Project Meeting Wednesday

The Envision Forest Health Council is hosting a community information meeting about the Methodist Front wildfire mitigation and forest health project this Wednesday at 5 pm.   

The project entails 8,000 acres of forest treatments on both public and private lands in the foothills of Methodist Mountain and up to Poncha Pass.  The work creates a community fuel break designed to protect the residents and businesses in and around Salida and Poncha Springs in the event of a wildfire.   

The meeting will be streamed live on the Envision Chaffee County Facebook page, where questions will be taken in the comments section.
