Field Trips

Biscuit Fire Field Trip

lead by Robert Barnhart

Saturday 9am-2pm

Explore effects from the infamous 2002 Biscuit fire from the fire and from post-fire timber salvage. Observe reforestation practices designed to optimize biological diversity that include utilizing micro sites, variance in species and density, and challenges to reforestation survival.  Participate in scientific discussion regarding the role of salvage and reforestation within a fire recovery area. The trip will be led by Forest Service foresters and staff. 

Natural Conifer Regeneration in Areas Burned at High Intensity by the Biscuit Fire

lead by Rich Nawa

Saturday 9am-2pm

 

Presenter Rich Nawa will lead a field trip to a study site in the headwaters of Mike’s Gulch that was burned at high intensity during the 2002 Biscuit Fire. Rich will demonstrate the technique he used to quantitatively assess natural conifer regeneration in 2005.  A nearby post-fire logging unit near Onion Camp that had logging slash burned and replanted with conifers will also be visited to see how planted conifers are establishing. Field trip will involve off trail hiking for about 3/4 mile total on gentle to moderate 15-40% slopes. These 2 sites are about 5 miles west of Deer Creek Center in the Siskiyou National Forest.
