*Correction* Our Fire Danger Level has been downgraded to 'Very High' from 'Extreme,' HOWEVER, our fire restrictions are remaining the same. That means, use of campfires, stoves, BBQs, any open flame is still not permitted in the forest. We apologize for the confusion.

Happy #GISDay! The Forest Service uses GIS technology for a variety of work, such as fighting fire, hydrology analysis, mapping invasive species, protecting wildlife and more. We also tell stories with our data! Check out our post-fire restoration map at https://arcg.is/1Wb4iC 🌲

The Forest Service partnered with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to implement a holistic, watershed-scale approach to fire restoration across the Ranch, Sayre, and Copper fires. Most activities were funded by cost recovery settlements.
