Fire management personnel from the Bureau of Land Management’s Bishop Field Office and the Inyo National Forest will conduct prescribed burning at Fish Slough in southern Mono County. Prescribed burning will be conducted as weather conditions allow during the remaining winter months. Smoke may be visible at times from Highway 395 and Highway 6, as well as from Bishop, Chalfant Valley and Hammil Valley. The purpose of the prescribed burning is to restore and enhance habitat for Owens Valley native fish species and the Fish Slough milk vetch, a threatened plant species. Approximately 73 acres will be burned this winter.

For more information, contact Dale Johnson, BLM fuels specialist, at (760) 872-5055 or Robert Bauer, Inyo National Forest district fire management officer, at (760) 873-2541.
