Casper Field Office Plans Slash Pile 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 may take place between December 8 and December 30, 2008.

BLM plans to treat approximately 10 acres of slash piles. The objectives of the prescribed fire are to reduce fuel loadings within the ponderosa pine forest.

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.
