  • Prescribed burns take place this Fall

    All four districts will be conducting prescribed burns as conditions allow. Prescribed burning reduces hazardous fuels which protects human communities from extreme fires. It also minimizes the spread of pest insects and disease, removes unwanted species that threaten species native to an ecosystem, provides forage for game, improves habitat for threatened and endangered species, recycles nutrients back to the soil, and promotes the growth of trees, wildflowers, and other plants. Find out details of the timing and locations by calling your local ranger district or visiting our prescribed fire page.
