Controlled Burn Scheduled In Routt County

controlled-burns-300A prescribed burn has been planned this month for the area southwest of the Seedhouse Campground near Hinman Park in Northern Routt County.  The 300 acre burn is expected to take place over two days and will commence when appropriate weather conditions are present. The fire is expected to reduce hazardous fuels in the area which will help prevent future wildfires, and will also improve elk and moose habitat. For additional information on the project call the call the Hahns Peak-Bears Ears Ranger District at 870-2299, or stop by the District Office in Steamboat.
