North Fork Mill Creek Timber Sale

A level green prairie surrounded by old growth ponderosas.

The North Fork Mill Creek proposal has been part of an evolving effort by the Forest Service to thin the Dalles Watershed and surrounding forests. Bark was part of the collaborative group that submitted recommendations in March 2006, which were considered by the Forest Service in the planning of the project. This project overlaps with the proposed Gibson Prairie Off-Highway Vehicle playground area.
