Clear Trap Prescribed Fire Cancelled
Contact: David Eaker, 435-772-7811
Zion National Park Superintendent Jock Whitworth announced that Park Fire Management Officials have decided to cancel the Clear Trap Prescribed Fire (Rx) which was scheduled to begin tomorrow, Saturday, May 12. Fire managers determined that due to forecasted weather conditions next week the vegetation in the burn unit would be too dry and the fire would not meet the resource and protection measures for which it was intended. The burn will not occur this spring, but will be considered again this fall if favorable weather and fuel conditions exist.
