The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) Mendocino Unit will be conducting a vegetation management prescribed burn on the Shamrock Ranch. This prescribed burn will treat approximately 600-acres of grasslands, chaparral, and understory vegetation within oak woodlands and mixed conifer habitats, creating a mosaic of variously burned vegetation and islands of unburned habitat.

The Shamrock Ranch is located in the northern portion of Mendocino County, east of Highway 101 near the town of Laytonville.

Burning will begin on Friday, October 27, 2023, and conclude on Sunday, October 29, 2023. Burning will start at approximately 10 a.m. and concluding at approximately 5 p.m. each day.

This project adds to significant work underway throughout the state and brings California one step closer towards meeting state fuels reduction goals directed by the California Fire Plan and the California Wildfire and Forest Resilience Action Plan.
