Teton Interagency fire managers plan to burn a 72 acre prescribed fire unit of the Central Buffalo Valley Habitat Enhancement Project this weekend. Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says the Dry Quad project is just south of Spread Creek on the Buffalo Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest, adjacent to Grand Teton National Park and approximately 4 1/2 miles south of Moran Junction. Cernicek explains the Central Buffalo Valley Habitat Enhancement Project is a combination of prescribed fire and mechanical treatments designed to restore desired vegetation conditions in aspen, sagebrush, and Douglas-fir communities to improve forage for elk, moose, deer and sage grouse. Additionally, she says fire managers hope to break up continuous conifer and brush fuels so they are less likely to burn at high intensities and to restore historic fire-return intervals to the area. No significant impacts are expected to hunters on the forest.
