As you make plans for the Fourth of July, remember that no fireworks are allowed on Forest Service lands! Also keep in mind that temperatures are expected to be warm and sunny, so the chance for wildfires to ignite will be increased. Be careful, don't let the first wildfire of the season be YOUR fault. Have a safe and enjoyable Fourth of July.
