Fallen tree clean-up planned for Bidwell Park

Highlights and Sticky Notes:Plans are being put in place that tackle the threat of fire, from prescribed burns to decreasing the amount of burnable material in the park.Last weekend, branches and limbs were cut and hauled to shredders during the Butte Environmental Council park cleanup. That’s the start.Not only do the clumps of vegetation and fallen wood represent fuel sources, but they are also hiding places for transients, Lowe said, noting the Fire Department has responded to several campfire problems in those situations.Tags: no_tagby: ndcarter
