Forest Service will Conduct Prescribed Burn along Highway 1

The Forest Service plans to conduct a prescribed burn on the Brazil Ranch in the Los Padres National Forest, 13.5 miles south of Carmel. Weather permitting; the 78 acre burn will occur on Tuesday, July 7. Smoke will be visible for several miles.

The purpose of the prescribed burn is to suppress undesirable weed vegetation and stimulate native plant growth. The goal is to preserve the scenic value and maintain the native plant diversity on the Brazil Ranch coastal terrace.

Highway 1 may be affected during the prescribed burn. Forest visitors are advised to call the Monterey Ranger District, at 831-386-0751, for current information.
