Fishlake National Forest – Richfield Ranger District begins hand ignitions on the South Monroe Mountain Prescribed Fire Project, and will continue as weather conditions allow. Today’s efforts will focus on black lining/buffering Unit 15 (see attached map), to secure future burning of additional units within the project boundary. This installment is a continuation of the Monroe Mountain Aspen Ecosystem Restoration Project.
The project is located on Monroe Mountain near Rock Springs, Big Table, and Manning Creek, approximately five miles west of Greenwich and seven miles east of Marysvale, Utah.
If prescribed conditions are favored, additional burning will take place throughout the coming weeks. Please see attached information sheet and map for additional information.
