California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) Mendocino Unit is pleased to announce the sale of one additional firewood permit per household on Jackson Demonstration State Forest (JDSF) beginning Monday, August 17, 2015 at 8:00 a.m. Firewood permits are for two cords per household at a cost of $20.00/permit.
Further, a second firewood gathering area is being opened on August 17th. Permit holders with remaining tags can return to the JDSF office in Fort Bragg with their permit and remaining tags in order to receive an updated map of the new firewood area. Firewood areas are tentatively scheduled to close on September 30, 2015, or until wood supply is gone, a significant rain event, or other resource constraints force closure, whichever occurs first.
Firewood permits and information on how to safely engage in collecting firewood are available at the CAL FIRE Fort Bragg office located at 802 North Main Street, Fort Bragg, CA (707) 964-5674. Office hours are 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. (closed from 12-1:00 p.m.) Monday through Friday.
Multiple uses of JDSF for a wide variety of activities that benefit the public, the economy and natural resources are what our demonstration forests are all about.
