Prescribed Fires Near Completion

April 13, 2012 Greater Yellowstone, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
Forest Fire

Teton Interagency Fire personnel were able to accomplish much of the work on three prescribed fires on the northern end of Bridger Teton National Forest before the turn in the weather this week.  Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says while a little work might still remain for this spring, most of what remains on the three target areas will be done this fall. Cernicek says the Lower Gros Ventre burn has been pretty much wrapped up now except for possibly a few more acres there in the fall.  She says the project has been extremely successful in improving the habitat resources for wildlife there.  The spring objectives for the Lava Creek burn have been completed.  What remains, Cernicek says, is a project involving the Beaver Mountain area in the Hoback Canyon area where crews will burn a perimeter around what is to be burned in the fall.  Cernicek quickly points out that private individuals planning on their own burning need to alert the Sheriff’s office ahead of time and follow the safety measures they outline.

  • Be ready for bumps, scrapes, cuts and more - October 30, 2014
    Being prepared for the worst is never a bad idea. However, if you carry everything you might need for any emergency, you won’t have room for your tent or sleeping bag. A first aid kit needs to be light and compact, or it’ll be one of the first things you toss out of the pack […]
