Grand Canyon National Park fire managers anticipate initiating prescribed pile burning this week (5/6/19) as weather and fuel moisture conditions allow. This project is anticipated to last throughout the month of May. As part of the South Rim Piles Project, they will burn 3,500 piles of woody debris east and west of South Entrance Road and south of Highway 64 (Desert View Drive) East. These 5'x5'x5' piles are comprised of slash left after mechanical thinning or cutting of trees within the 150 acre project area, and are being burned as part of a key objective of the project, which is to reduce the fuel load.
