CARSON CITY — The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Carson City District is set to begin rehabilitation work Monday on public lands administered by the BLM that were burned in the Washoe Drive wildland fire area.

About 600 acres will be aerially seeded with a variety of native and non-native plant species. The selection of these plant species is based on their ability to aid in erosion control, evasive species control and fire resistance.

In addition to the planned Washoe Fire rehabilitation, the BLM recently completed rehabilitation projects consisting of 3,000 acres within the burned areas of the Ray May wildland fire and 75 acres within the Burbank wildland fires. BLM has three more rehabilitation projects scheduled for February.
