December 6 through 8, 2011 - Prescribed fire activity continues in the vicinity east of Concho Billie Trail and north of Mud Lake and Mud Lake Bypass Trails (see map here.)

Last week crews were able to burn within 2,000 acres of the southern portion of the proposed 7,000 acre operational area.
Did You Know?
Do not feed wildlife within the preserve. A "fed bear is a dead bear." This bear was fed and eventually became a threat to visitor safety. Nuisance wildlife is sometimes removed, but typically does not survive.
