Stanislaus National Forest Recreation and Fire Units Extinguish Abandoned Campfires and Pick Up Trash

Sonora, CA...The Stanislaus National Forest provides the following information about abandoned campfires and trash left behind on forest. Throughout the 4th of July holiday week, there was 42 abandoned campfires that were found and extinguished by fire and recreation staff. These abandoned campfires, if left unfound, could easily become an out of control wildfire. It is a requirement for all forest visitors in California, to have a valid California Campfire Permit. When you obtain this permit, you receive the expectations as a forest visitor on how to properly build, maintain and extinguish your campfires. The current fine for a campfire violation on the Stanislaus National Forest is $380. We want everyone to have the opportunity to enjoy our forest public lands. It only takes one abandoned campfire to become the next major wildfire in California.









Recreation and fire units also picked up over 100 bags of trash throughout the forest. This trash is not only unsightly and smell terrible, it is harmful and potentially deadly to our local wildlife and natural resources. All trash must be disposed of properly, and you can be cited a $150 fine for not doing so. This means, “failing to dispose of all garbage, including any paper, can, bottle, sewage, waste water or material, or rubbish either by removal from the site or area, or by depositing it into receptacles or at places provided for such purposes” per CA Penal Code 261.11(d). If trash bins are unavailable for a remote location and you packed it in, please Pack It Out!

Please see photos attached to this release and PLEASE be a responsible forest visitor.

    Well how do you know it is the "flatlanders?" I've seen locals dump stuff with little regard. So hold your horses. This looks like someone who is either uninformed or just lazy without geographical restrictions.

      The only people making money up in pinecrest is Laurie Cashman and Heidi! Heidi makes sure Charlie gets paid very well! Anyone else working up there gets minimum wage or damn near it! They hide behind the excuse of they can’t afford raises! They don’t want to give up there rich lifestyle! That’s the real reason!

      So save your money and avoid pine crest! Don’t support them lowballing their employees! They treat their employees like *bleep* and expect them to come back for more!

      If you don’t believe me just ask Jim or Garrett or Tony. Oh wait you can’t! They all got treated like *bleep* and they finally wised up and left that *bleep* hole behind! They all think Jake and the new guy Robert is the answer. Just a matter of time till they get fed up with Laurie and Heidi bull*bleep* too!!

          No cock sucker they all left because Laurie and Heidi treated them like *bleep*! They all worked their butts off for them and all they did was use them and pay them piss poorly!

          If you don’t believe me just go up there find Laurie and ask if they got a lunch time dishwasher. I bet they still don’t!

    Do you even head up here? Most are jacked up trucks or jeeps with caucasians. Yes, I know that's racist but it's hardly profiling when you actually see who is driving.

      And let's be clear - there is a huge difference between many of those camping from the ones who have bought a vacation home in Arnold and above. Often these owners are second and third generation. The latter are invested in the area and keeping it beautiful; the others more about immediate gratification.

        What a load of garbage - literally and figuratively. Way to generalize! People who buy homes in Arnold are different how from those to have lived here for generations? Let's see. They pay money to patronize local businesses. They go to Church here, go to the gas stations, go to the stores, contribute in taxes, and bring in other folks who do the same. The locals? Well they do the same. Generalizations are generally wrong.

      It's not racist, it's just the truth. When you see a tire rim up in the trash, you know that's a camp of local hillbillies. When you start seeing little bags that had meth in it, you know it's an unemployed democrat, drug dealer and his little butt buddies, and you know they live up here in the hills and it's their friends from Valley Springs, Modesto, Stockton, Arnold, Sonora all of them socialist democrats living the dream and planning their next tax rate increase when you leave your home and they rob you.

Fines should be twice of what they are now. Permits and inspections before they leave(if possible). And if caught, several weekends THEY have to clean up after other people. Jerks

        Why don’t democrats answer a simple question about Mini AOC?

        Why did the Democrats think it’s ok to give death threats to a 8 year old and her family? The Democrats can have baby trump and trump on a toilet but a mini Aoc triggers them?

        So democrats out there why did you all give death threats to an eight year old child and her family?

          Something needs to be done about Natural Bridges. In the last few years it’s been entirely overrun with tourists. Thursday through Sunday the cars are lined up on Parrotts Ferry a half a mile in each direction, people are darting in and out of the road and backing out in front of traffic moving at highway speed.
          Then there’s the trash. They’ve been leaving - literally - tons of garbage all over the trail and down at the water. It’s disgusting. Locals have been doing their best to clean up after them, but it’s impossible to keep ip. These visitors have zero regard for the environment.
          Is there anything that can be done to deal with this issue? I’m tired of swerving around them on the road. I’m tired of picking up their garbage. The damage they’re causing to that beautiful spot is criminal. There has to be some solution other than sitting back and watching them ruin it.

        Yeah the smart people are really doing a good job in Califonia. Turning it into a third world socialist State. And the Dems/Liberals ruin everything they touch, then blame the everyone else. And you fools that hate Trump should take the time to look at how much better the US is now compared to when the magic neegro was bringing it down. And you fools don't see what that commie Newsom is doing on a daily basis to further ruin Ca. I cannot imagine how fugged up this Country will be in another 50 years, if it even still exsists.

Classic flatlander inconsideration - like driving the wrong direction in the market parking lot, turning LEFT from Blagen Road onto highway 4 coming from the post office, driving too fast, and on and on. See it EVERY busy weekend up here.
