Hunter Creek Valley Prescribed Burns this Spring

Attention Roaring Fork Valley Residents!

The U.S. Forest Service is planning to conduct a prescribed fire in the Hunter Creek Valley in the spring of 2016 to improve wildlife habitat and decrease the risk of catastrophic wildfire. The project is part of the Hunter-Smuggler Cooperative Plan, which was finalized in early 2014 and seeks to improve forest resiliency and recreation in the Hunter Creek Valley and surrounding landscape.

Where, when and how long will the burn occur?

Where: The attached map on the back shows the areas where the prescribed burn will take place. We are asking the public to refrain from recreating in the Hunter Creek-Smuggler area for approximately 1-3 days during the prescribed burn.

When: The project will be implemented when conditions are ideal for a safe and effective prescribed fire. Conditions are considered suitable when the snow has melted off the south-facing aspects (slopes) in Hunter Creek and all other surrounding areas still retain moisture and snow. These conditions typically occur in April or early May. Other environmental factors such as wind, temperature and relative humidity will be key elements.

Duration: Please note that the work will take place over a 1-3 day period. After which, officials will declare the area safe to recreate in.

What to expect during the prescribed fire?

On the day of the burn please do not call 911. There may be large volumes of smoke visible at times in the Hunter Creek valley and people may even see flames.

Recreation and trail use: For your own safety, please refrain from recreating in the Hunter Creek Valley until the area is declared safe. Updates will be available at the White River National Forest Twitter account @WhiteRiverNews, the White River National Forest website: http://www.fs.usda.gov/whiteriver or by calling the Sopris Ranger Station (970) 963-2266.

Smoke: Prior to burning, a smoke permit is obtained through the state of Colorado - Air Pollution Control Division. The Upper Colorado River Interagency Fire Unit (UCR) works hard to minimize smoke impacts on surrounding communities. Real-time air quality data can be found at aspenairquality.com

If you have a smoke sensitivity, please contact Jim Genung at 970-404-3150 so we can keep you informed of smoke conditions. Prescribed fire smoke may affect your health. For more information, please visit: https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdphe/wood-smoke-and-health.
