Restoration Mapped Out For Little Horsethief Fire

fire restoration

A Burned Area Emergency Response team has gathered information and conducted field observations to determine how to reduce impacts of post-fire conditions in the Little Horsethief Canyon fire on the Bridger-Teton National Forest.  Their findings were reported to the Forest Supervisor Friday and will serve to guide restoration efforts in the fire area.  Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek explains that BAER teams consider potential post-fire impacts to human life and safety, property, and cultural and natural resources.   When they go through an area of the forest that has recently been burned, Cernicek says they look for such things as areas where there are erosion concerns, damaged trails or roads, areas where noxious weeds may have been introduced, or areas where the water quality could be jeopardized by erosion. Cernicek says now that the report has been compiled, forest personnel will begin some of the rehabilitation work as soon as this month – before freezing temperatures and snow move into the area.

  • Wish list season is upon us again - October 17, 2014
    Late October is a bad time of year for me. If I were independently wealthy, it wouldn’t be so bad. But I’m not. I’m a journalist, so it’s a little painful. It’s rough because this is when the Christmas catalogs start hitting the mailbox, and they’re chock-full of gear I wish I had. From the […]
