Kemmerer Ranger District of Bridger-Teton National Forest plans controlled burn


KEMMERER, Wyoming — Officials on the Kemmerer Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest plan to continue prescribed burning in the Pole Creek area this fall and early winter.

Plans call for burning up to 40 acres on Forest Service lands in the Pole Creek project area starting around the second to third weeks in November.

This project is a continuation of burning that the Forest Service and U.S. Bureau of Land Management started on over 6,000 acres in the lower Pole Creek drainage in 2010. Burning continued this spring on over 200 acres.

The objective of the burning is to improve forest conditions and habitat for big game.
