The Canyon Lakes Ranger District of the Roosevelt National Forest plans to conduct the Red Feather Prescribed Burn as soon March 20, 2017, continuing through the spring as conditions allow.

The burn is located north of Red Feather Lakes and the entire project is 4,348 acres. Depending on conditions, some or all of these acres could be burned this year. The goal of the burn is to reduce hazardous fuels, improve forest health and wildlife habitat, and protect watersheds.

Appropriate conditions must be met before ignition can take place, including favorable weather forecast (temperature, wind, precipitation, etc.), fuel moisture, smoke dispersal and staffing. Weather is monitored throughout the burn and burning will be halted if conditions fall outside of the requirements.

Prescribed fire smoke may affect your health. For more information see If you would like to receive continual updates on the project, please send an email to
