Rain Put Fall Burns on Hold

With seemingly non-stop rain since September, Dennis Neitzke, District Ranger announced at a recent meeting of Canoe Outfitters that due to the weather it was unlikely that the District would be able to conduct any prescribed burns this fall. In order to burn at least ten days would be required to dry out the forest enough to be able to burn and the window when it could be burned would soon be ending. This fall's plans included burning the southern end of the Caribou Rock Trail, the eastern and western ends of the Banadad Ski Trail and several sites east of the Lima Grade.

Maybe "mother nature" is telling us that we have had enough fire this year!
