The forest supervisors from the Mendocino, Shasta-Trinity and Six Rivers national forests are pleased to inform the public that the August Complex vegetation and resource rapid assessment and maps are available at

The rapid assessment evaluates short-term post-fire restoration opportunities; identifies public safety, cultural, and natural resource concerns; and integrates a short-term strategy with medium- to long-term strategic management of the post-fire landscape across forest boundaries. The Rapid Assessment Team was comprised of specialists in heritage, fuels, geology, wildlife, timber, public affairs, planning and other resources.

This assessment is a first step in identifying the hazard reduction and restoration activities the Forests will pursue within the August Complex fire area. Additional resource considerations and public input will be included during the next steps to help refine and target areas for restoration work.
