The Jackson and Blackrock Ranger Districts will be moving forward with prescribed burn operations on the Taylor Mountain. The exact timing of these plans will depend heavily upon the previous, current and expected weather and air quality conditions. Fire Managers have been watching the weather closely and could start implementation of Taylor Mountain as early as Wednesday October 21, 2020.
The Taylor Mountain Prescribed Burn is located in the vicinity of Hidden Hills and Highland Hills subdivisions south of Wilson WY. This burn could total up to 20 acres being accomplished approximately one to two acres a day. This will be a continuation of the fuels management efforts from last year, much like last year, where crews will be reducing ground fuel loading and ladder fuels through a combination of tactics. Each day the ignited area will be extinguished reducing long term adverse effects to soil as well as minimizing smoke impacts to the adjacent public.
