The Rancheria Forest Restoration Project was formerly referred to as the Revised Sawmill Forest Health and Fuels Reduction Project. It is located along the ridgeline of the Greenhorn Mountains, adjacent to Rancheria Road near the community of Alta Sierra. In collaboration with the Kern River Valley Fire Safe Council, the Forest Service has determined the need to reduce the risk of uncharacteristically severe wildfire in this area. The purpose of the Rancheria Forest Restoration Project is to design and implement vegetation treatments that would restore the forest to a healthy, diverse, and fire-resilient condition and reduce fuel loads.
