White Sulphur Springs Ranch
Healthy Forest/Fuels Reduction Program
In 2012 the Mohawk Valley Stewardship Council (MVSC) was awarded a planning grant from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy, an agency dedicated to reducing the risk of catastrophic wildfires in the Sierras, to develop a fuels reduction plan for the White Sulphur Springs Ranch.
In order to develop this plan, the MVSC hired a Registered Professional Forester (RPF) and a hydrologist to analyze hazardous fuels conditions on the property. The RFP developed a timber harvest plan for the property and the hydrologist conducted surveys of the sensitive hydrological features on the property that will be protected during the fuels reduction work. The next step will be to seek implementation funds to reduce fuels on the property and to make the forest more resilient to wildfire.
The slide presentation below summarizes that project and the need to manage the forest area around the historic White Sulphur Springs Ranch.
