- Yellowstone wildland fire staff will conduct a 16-acre prescribed fire on one day between October 16-24, weather dependent.
- The burn site is located in the northern section of the park, three miles northwest of Gardiner, Montana, and about a mile east of Stephens Creek.
- The day of ignition, smoke may be visible in the afternoon for 3 to 6 hours.
- The prescribed fire will consume 90% of the seeds of annual weeds (wheatgrass and desert alyssum) that impede native vegetation restoration.
- The results of using fire to restore native vegetation will inform current and future restoration efforts throughout degraded sagebrush and grassland systems in the West.
