Bridger-Teton National Forest plans prescribed burns near Big Piney, Wyoming (posted 10/11/19)
Bridger-Teton National Forest
The Bridger-Teton National Forest is planning to conduct a prescribed burn on the Big Piney Ranger District in the next few days.
Fire managers expect to begin ignitions on the Cottonwood II prescribed burn on or about October 17, 2019, if weather and fuel conditions are favorable. This is the last unit in the project and approximately 45-acres will be burned. Earlier this spring, 80-acres of this unit were burned as prescribed. The burn unit is located approximately 20-miles west of Daniel, WY on Sjhoberg Creek on the north side of North Cottonwood Creek drainage.
Objectives include, increase aspen stand regeneration, reduce conifer encroachment, increase forage conditions for wildlife habitat and reduce hazardous fuels build-up while restoring fire-adaptive ecosystems. This vegetation treatment is an interagency cooperative effort with Bureau of Land Management, Wyoming Game & Fish Department, Sublette County Unified Fire and Teton Interagency Fire.
Actual ignitions for these burns will depend on meeting strict parameters for weather and fire behavior conditions. Smoke will be visible in the immediate vicinity and may be seen from Hwy 191/189 during the ignition phase and for a short time after lighting has been completed. No closures are anticipated with this burn.
For more information on this prescribed burn and other fuels projects, visit https://www.fs.usda.gov/main/btnf/home In the center of the page enter your email address and then submit the request. You will then be able to choose what news release topics you wish to receive.
