Prescription Burn in Shevlin Park

It’s that sinking feeling you get when you’re driving through town and you see a giant plume of smoke in the distance. It happens a lot around this time of year, and so far, prescribed burns have been the source of that smoke.

On Thursday, the Deschutes National Forest teamed up with the Bend Park & Recreation District for a prescribed burn of 48 acres in Shevlin Park, and Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan was there for the story.
