Prescribed Burns Questioned

Sonora, CA — The Tuolumne County Supervisors are writing a letter to the Stanislaus National Forest and Yosemite National Park asking for better communication regarding prescribed burns.

The Supervisors stated at today’s meeting that there are concerns regarding the effect that prescribed burns have on tourism. The letter does not question the need for prescribed burns, but the timing.

Days before the 4th of July weekend, Yosemite National Park conducted a 200 acre prescribed burn near Crane Flat that caused some drift smoke in the area.
