Rocky Mountain National Park Prescribed Burn
Rocky Mountain National Park fire managers are planning to conduct a prescribed fire (pile burn) to achieve resource management and hazard fuel reduction objectives. The burn is planned for March 1, 2010 at approximately 10:00 a.m., if weather conditions allow. Ignition of piles may continue throughout the month of March and will take place during normal business days.
Residual smoke may be observed through the weekends. The burn will be located in the Fall River Valley above Aspen Glenn Campground on the Northern aspect of Deer Mountain. Approximately 2,500 piles will be burned within this project.
