Prescribed Fire

Description

Matilda

LOCATION: Between Lozier Hill and the intersection of Pacific Creek Road and Two Ocean Road in Grand Teton National Park. The unit is 1 1/3 mile west of the Pacific Creek Subdivision, which is identified in the 2005 Teton County Community Wildfire Protection Plan as the third priority out of 19 communities at risk.

POSTPONED: Originally scheduled for Sept. 2013, but heavy rains have made the fuels (vegetation) too wet to meet the prescription. The project will be rescheduled for next year.

PROJECT SIZE: 371 acres

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: This prescribed fire addresses timber mixed with deadfall on the east side of Emma Matilda Lake. Completion of this prescribed fire will reintroduce fire into an area where fire starts are typically suppressed and increase the chances for controlling a wildfire before it reaches private structures.
