Fire is the major ecological process on the landscape in Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve. Episodic large and small-scale wildland fires burn across the preserve. The preserve lies within the northern boreal forest ecological zone and a climatic region known as the interior basin. Mountains to the north and south tend to block moderating oceanic air masses, resulting in high temperatures, low precipitation and frequent lightning occurrences in the summer months. Due to these factors, fire persists as an inextricable environmental factor and has been a constant force of change for thousands of years.
