The Mammoth, Mono Lake, and White Mountain Ranger Districts of the Inyo National Forest are planning to implement several prescribed fire projects in the upcoming fall and winter months. Prescribed fires will be conducted when weather and fuel moisture conditions are within defined parameters to safely accomplish the project objectives. These projects help to reduce hazardous accumulations of vegetation and fuels, reduce overall fire danger to firefighters and the public, build resilience to future catastrophic wildfires, and produce less smoke than severe wildfires.

Smoke may be visible at times from Highways 395, 158, 167, 120 and 203, as well as the communities of Mono City, Lee Vining, June Lake, Mammoth Lakes, Crowley Lake, Sunny Slopes, and Tom’s Place. All prescribed fire activities will be coordinated with the Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District in order to provide the best smoke dispersion and to reduce impacts to Eastern Sierra communities.

When you see prescribed fires during the cool times of the year, please understand that we are creating healthier forests and wildfire resilient communities: for today and future generations.
