Outdoor burn ban
For those of you who have not yet burned your brush piles from this winter’s devastation, you may have to wait until after the fall rains begin. The Lane Regional Air Protection Agency (LRAPA) temporarily has suspended outdoor burning throughout Lane County due to high fire danger. Let’s be good neighbors and respect this ruling to make sure that Lane County doesn’t contribute to early grass or forest fires in Oregon.
Enjoy these beautiful late spring/early summer days while the grass and trees bear the freshness of new growth, everyone! I believe that it’s my favorite time of year.
