If conditions allow, approximately 7,000 acres of national forest lands across multiple ranger districts are slated to be treated with prescribed fire this spring across the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests.

According to the agency, these projects help to reduce hazardous fuels, restore wildlife habitat, and create better protection around communities from future wildfires. Prescribed burning may continue throughout the spring when fuel and weather conditions become favorable.
