Prescribed Burns Scheduled in Park County
Written by Andrew-Rossi on April 5, 2019
The Shoshone National Forest is planning to implement three prescribed fire projects northwest of Cody and one west of Meeteetse.
The planned prescribed fire projects will be done to reduce hazardous fuels in close proximity to private property as well as enhance range and wildlife habitat. Areas affected include near Dead Indian Pass and Dead Indian Campground; near the junction of Highways 296 and 212; and along the South Fork of the Wood River. Forest officials say the projects are planned as weather and fuel conditions allow in April and May.
Signs will be posted in project areas and adjacent land owners will be notified prior to beginning the prescribed fire projects, and smoke may be visible from the surrounding areas during these projects.
