Casper Field Office Plans Prescribed
 Burn in Converse County

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Casper Field Office is planning to conduct a prescribed burn within Converse county near the community of Esterbrook, Wyo. Implementation of the prescribed burn is planned for Friday, June 13, 2008.

BLM plans to treat approximately 15 acres in the Ponderosa Pine forest. The objectives of the prescribed fire are to improve fuel breaks adjacent to private property and promote forest health.

This prescribed burn project will be conducted in accordance with an approved burn plan if favorable weather and fuel conditions permit. For more information, please contact Kristi Bulock at (307) 261-7600.
