BLM Plans Spring Prescribed Burn Projects

The Bureau of Land Management Bishop Field Office is planning several prescribed fire projects for habitat improvement and hazardous fuels reduction. 

The projects are located near Conway Summit, Rancheria Gulch, Trench Canyon, and Fish Slough.  Treatments will consist of broadcast and pile burning. The projects will be implemented this spring when vegetation moisture and weather conditions are within prescription to safely accomplish the burn and meet project objectives. 

For more information, contact Dale Johnson, Vegetation Management specialist for the Bishop Field Office, at (760) 872-5055.
