Prescribed burns coming
Posted 05 September 2008 - 11:41 AM
Preparations are currently taking place in order to burn these units within the next couple of months when conditions are suitable to burn. The unit is located in upper Beaver Meadows, west of the Beaver meadows entrance station and south of Deer Ridge Junction.
Prescribed burning operations may begin as early as mid September, but may occur any time this fall when weather and fuel conditions are appropriate. If burning does take place, it may last from one to several days with smoke visible from Highways 34 and 36 as well as other locations in the park. Every effort will be made to minimize smoke impacts on visitors and the adjacent community; however some smoke is anticipated to flow down the Beaver Brook and Big Thompson River corridors and into the Town of Estes Park in the morning hours.
Safety factors, weather conditions, air quality and environmental regulations are continually monitored as a part of any fire management operation. For more information please contact the park’s information office at (970) 586-1206.
