LNF Wants Your Thoughts on Weed Treatment Project at Eagle Lake


The Lassen National Forest is looking for your opinion. The Eagle Lake Weeds and Wildlife project area that is next to Eagle Lake between 44 and 139 will be treated for weed control. The area includes the whaleback burn scar to the west of the lake and shoreline parcels and national forest service property on the southern and eastern sides. The project is intended to treat invasive plant infestations up to 30 acres annually. They will use methods including manual removal of weeds, cultural, biological, and chemical. The project will also include building predatory osprey nest platforms in the Eagle Lake osprey management area. If you have something to say about the project you will have 30 days to submit those through email, written letter, or verbally. Written or emailed comments can be given to the District Ranger at the Eagle Lake Ranger District. Following the comment period a decision on the project will be made in the spring of this year.


You can find more information about the project at the forest service website.
