Upper Gros Ventre Wildlife Habitat Enhancement RX
Teton Interagency firefighters and fuels managers will be conducting up to 557 acres of prescribed fire. Prescribed fire will be used to regenerate decadent aspen stands and to mitigate conifer encroachment.
This will occur in the Haystack Fork and Little Bear Paw Fork of Slate Creek in the Gros Ventre River Drainage. See map.
Ignition will occur with hand crews, other ground resources and helicopters. Depending on weather and potential smoke impacts, the burning window will occur in the fall of 2022 near the end of September into the middle of October, operations should last 4-10 days. Flyer
