The USDA Forest Service is planning a prescribed burn in June or July on about 42 acres of national forest land on the Bent Creek Experimental Forest. The study will help agency scientists understand how the timing of prescribed burning affects hardwood regeneration — primarily for oaks — along with herbaceous vegetation, fuel loading and breeding bird communities. The areas to be burned include three forest compartments near the Lake Powhatan Recreation Area, adjacent to Forest Service Roads 479 and 664. Photo by Jonathan Welch
The Centers for Disease Control recommended that Lake Powhatan be temporarily closed to prevent the spread of cryptosporidium (crypto), according to a Buncombe County Health Department notice on Friday, Aug. 28. The Forest Service is fully cooperating and has closed Lake Powhatan to swimming and fishing.
