Casper Field Office Plans Prescribed Burn

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is planning to conduct the Bathtub Springs prescribed burn in Natrona County, Wyo. September 30 through October 1, 2008.

The Bathtub Spring burn will treat 600-700 acres of big sagebrush-grasslands and aspen woodlands with prescribed fire about 70 miles west-northwest of Casper and 10 miles north of Arminto on the Clear Creek grazing allotment. The goals are to improve big game habitat, foster riparian/wetland area recovery, improve forest health in aspen woodlands and associated big sagebrush-grassland communities, and improve forage base for livestock.

All prescribed burn projects are conducted in accordance with approved burn plans when favorable weather, smoke, and fuel conditions permit. For more information, please contact Kristi Bulock or George Soehn at 307-261-7600.
