Prescribed Burning South of Burley, ID.

The Idaho Department of Lands will be conducting a pile burning project approximately 40 miles south of Burley, ID in the Jim Sage Mountains.  Burning will begin on Wednesday, January 30th and continue through Friday, February 1st.  The project will burn roughly 1700 piles of juniper that were cleared as part of a Cohesive Strategy Special Project that was grant funded  by the US Forest Service through the Idaho Department of Lands.  The project is located in two different units; one unit is approximately 4 miles east of Elba, ID, and the other is approximately 4 miles south-southwest of Almo, ID

The intention of the fuels treatment is to reduce juniper density to improve sage grouse habitat and create fuel breaks to protect existing sage habitat.
