Due to the extreme fire danger throughout Douglas County, the Douglas Forest Protective Association has modified the Regulated Use Closure for the general public. Effective September 11 at 12:01 a.m., the mowing of dead, dry grass with power driven machinery will be prohibited on all DFPA protected land. The mowing of green, irrigated grass is still allowed. All other restrictions under DFPA’s Regulated Use Closure remain in effect and unchanged.
Other activities either restricted or prohibited under DFPA’s Regulated Use Closure include smoking, backyard burning, campfires, chain saw use, off road driving, and other high risk fire activities. For more information about public or industrial restrictions currently in effect, visit www.dfpa.net or call the information line at (541) 672-0379.
