Spring is often the time when folks work to clean up vegetation and yard debris around their property.  In Warm Springs a burn permit is required for yard debris and you can pick up your permit at the Warm Springs Fire Dispatch office. Anyone planning to burn yard debris should –  avoid burning on windy days; never leave a fire unattended: and be certain the fire is completely out prior to leaving.  Have a water source and shovel available while burning.  Keep debris piles small adding material gradually as the pile burns down.  Call Police Dispatch before you start your burn to give them your permit number.

Mushroom permits are available at the Forestry Administration Office weekdays during business hours.  A permit is required for tribal members who will harvest, possess or transport more than a gallon of mushrooms.
