Prescribed burn on Friday

To: UC Santa Cruz Community

From: Lisa Ehret, Director, Office of Emergency Services

As announced last fall, CAL FIRE is planning to conduct a number of prescribed burns cooperatively with UC Santa Cruz through 2018.

A prescribed burn is scheduled for Oct. 5, pending weather conditions, in lower Marshall Field. Please avoid this area. A map of the area scheduled to be burned is online.

CAL FIRE expects smoke to be minimal, based on the kind of material they are burning.

For more information, please read the burn notice.
