Only You… Can Stay Out of the Forests

Due to the extreme risk of wildfire, the U.S. Forest Service is closing every national forest in California starting at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday.

With the Caldor Fire raging across the Sierra and dangerously dry conditions persisting across the state, the USFS issued a news release announcing the closure, citing the 6,800 wildfires and 1.7 million acres that have already burned.

The closure is expected to end on Sept. 17 . . .  fingers crossed we get some moisture by then.
