Chetco Bar Post-Fire BAER Burned Area Emergency Response
News – 10/5/2017

While conducting surveys this week, BAER scientists observed a variety of plants re-sprouting in several different locations across the burned area. This is an indication that soils in many places were not as impacted as once feared. Today the team will finish their field assessments and start developing a recommended treatment plan.
