State selling firewood

The Nevada Division of State Parks has a small amount of firewood available for public purchase.

Approximately 50 permits will go on sale Sept. 14.

The sale starts at 8 a.m. on the first floor of the Richard H. Bryan state office building, located at 901 S. Stewart St. in Carson City. Permits are $50 per cord, cash or check only, limit one cord per address. The sale will end once all permits are sold.

Purchased wood can be picked up from Sept. 20-22 at the North Canyon area near Spooner Lake. A map will be provided with the permit. The wood is a mixture of pine and fir, some seasoned and some green. Most of the wood is approximately 18 inches with some odd sized and large rounds interspersed.

Access into North Canyon requires navigation through areas of loose, sandy soils. Four-wheel drive or heavy duty two-wheel drive vehicles are strongly recommended. Trailers may be permitted at the discretion of state parks personnel. Trailers deemed unsafe by park staff must be left at the staging area.

Call Joy Elwood for more information at 684-2793.
