Prescibed Burn Planned Wednesday On Uncompahgre Plateau

Sep 16, 2014

The Forest Service is planning a prescribed burn Wednesday on the Uncompahgre Plateau.

The agency plans to burn 147 acres on the northern end of 25 Mesa Road, also known as the Delta-Nucla road.

Lee Ann Goupe is a spokeswoman with the Forest Service.

"This is an area where an Environmental Assessment was done and this is part of those prescribed treatments designed to enhance wildlife habitat, reduce fuels and reintroduce fire into that ecosystem," Goupe says.
