Western WY – Teton Interagency fire managers announce the fire danger rating has been elevated to high for the Bridger-Teton National Forest, Grand Teton National Park, National Elk Refuge, and remaining portions of the Teton Interagency Dispatch area. The potential for fire activity has increased due to summer curing of vegetation combined with hot temperatures and dry, windy conditions.

           Sticker Explanation! The next phase of the Teton to Snake Fuels Reduction Project on the Phillips Ridge area of the Jackson Ranger District. Throughout the next month, contractors will be cutting trees and stacking woody debris to minimize fire hazards in proximity to the powerline road, the Snotel and Phillips Ridge trails. 

In order to provide for public safety and allow contractors to complete the tree cutting as quickly as possible, dispersed camping will be suspended on Phillips ridge east of the Snotel trail and the Phillips road will be temporarily closed to vehicle traffic for approximately 3-weeks. For more information please call 307-739-5431
