A Notice to the Public About Prescribed Burning

The Pacific Southwest Region is moving forward with prescribed fire operations as conditions and resources permit.

Forest Fire Restoration Program

The Angeles National Forest is located within one of the driest, most fire-prone areas in the United States – where human-caused wildland fires are becoming larger and more frequent - significantly damaging natural resources as well as the important human infrastructure on these invaluable public lands.

Not all areas and resources impacted by these fires will recover naturally, so forest managers and partners have launched a number of restoration efforts intended to produce ecosystems that are able to adapt and thrive over time. Projects located within the areas burned by the Copper Fire (2002), Ranch Fire (2007), and Sayre Fire (2008) focus on forest or upland vegetation and stream or riparian ecosystem restoration, sensitive wildlife species management, infrastructure improvements, and other beneficial projects.

San Gabriel Mountains National Monument Plan is Completed

The Land Management Plan Amendment, Environmental Assessment (EA), and Decision Notice for the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument are complete. "We are excited to have this plan to the finish line," Jerome Perez, Angeles National Forest Supervisor, stated. "The collaborative effort with our many partners has been outstanding, and we look forward to continued cooperation as we implement this plan." The Monument Plan provides guidance for the Angeles National Forest to manage the area’s unique ecological, social, and cultural resources for years to come. The Angeles National Forest will now begin carrying out the Monument Plan. Specific projects across the monument will progress through planning and implementation, and the Monument Plan will help guide those efforts. Any project initiated on the Monument will need to be in alignment with this Plan.


Angeles Fuels Program

The Angeles National Forest Fuels program mission is to manage fuels at the landscape scale to restore and maintain fire-resilient landscapes that are compatible with their historical fire return interval, a core goal of the Cohesive Strategy.
