National Park Service Plans Prescribed Burns in Stehekin
Contact: Kerry Olson, (360) 854-7365, ext 13
Taking advantage of the cooler and wetter fall weather, North Cascades National Park fire crews are preparing to burn two units within the next two weeks. The exact timing of the prescribed burns will be determined by environmental conditions and careful consideration of public fall events within the Stehekin Valley. The approximately 50-acre Coon Run unit is located north of the Stehekin Valley Ranch. The 45-acre Boulder Forest Fuel Reduction Area (FFRA) unit is located just north of Boulder Creek. Fire crews from Olympic National Park, Mount Rainier National Park and Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest will assist with the burns.
