Project Summary:
This is the third prescribed burn of the Wyoming Front Aspen Regeneration Project (WYFARP). The Wyoming Front Aspen Regeneration Project is a part of a 10 year stewardship assistance agreement that the BLM entered into with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation in 2006. The goal of the partnership was to treat approximately 9,000 acres of Aspen (Populous Tremuloides) stands along the Wyoming Range that were being encroached by conifers and failing to generate enough suckers to ensure the survival of the Aspen clone.
The goal of this project is to stimulate regeneration of aspen plant communities and reduce hazardous fuels within approximately 1,154 acres within the Camp Creek area described above by the use of prescribed fire. The total project boundary is 3,523 acres. Increasing aspen stand vigor by reducing conifer dominance could improve habitat interspersion, ecological function, and improve habitat for aspen-dependent species.
