After the wettest winter in almost two decades, Oregon expected a benign fire season in 2017. Then spring rains turned into an exceptionally hot and dry summer. When a series of thunderstorms arrived in early August, the Umpqua National Forest was primed to burn. Before fire season was over, 115 lighting-caused fires would burn more than 64,000 acres on the Forest.
This report synthesizes past surveys and research to provide an updated determination of the Diamond Lake Recreational Residence Tract’s eligibility for the National Register of Historic Places. This determination will facilitate efficient management of the resources in the future.
