Prescribed Burns at Lake Tahoe State Park This Month

Posted: Updated:

From the Nevada Division of Forestry:

The Nevada Division of Forestry will be conducting prescribed burns in North Canyon, near Spooner Lake, in the Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park backcountry throughout the month of November, weather permitting.

Signs will be posted throughout the area when burns are being conducted. Nearly 150 acres will be treated in five separate treatment units.

The burns are part of ongoing fuels treatment and forest restoration efforts being conducted by the Nevada Tahoe Resource Team. The goal of the project is to create a healthier forest and to make the area more resistant to catastrophic wildfire.

Weather patterns will be monitored for smoke management prior to and during burns. The
timing of the burns depends on optimum weather conditions and steps will be made to minimize the impact on park visitors.

For more information, contact the Nevada Division of Forestry at 775-684-2500.
