Jensen, UT & Dinosaur, CO – Fire crews at Dinosaur National Monument will conduct a prescribed fire on the Utah side of the monument the week of May 1st, weather permitting.

The prescription for this fire is to remove slash piles of woody debris that have been stored temporarily. This project will reduce the potential for future extreme wildfire. Smoke will be visible from the Green River and Split Mountain campgrounds and other developed areas in or near the Utah portion of the monument.

For more information, call (435) 781-7700 or follow DinosaurNPS on social media.
