LOCATION:  Basin Creek off the Green Knoll/Big Spring cutoff, Kemmerer Ranger District

Prescribed burning will be used to develop a diverse mix of vegetative composition and structure and increase a mosaic pattern on the landscape of different fuel types, fuel loadings, forested communities and stand age-classes to decrease the proportion of the landscape that would be affected by high intensity wildfires. The primary objective of this burn is to stimulate regeneration of aspen plant communities, reduce conifer encroachment, and reduce hazardous fuels within the Hams Fork Vegetation Project area.
