BARING – Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge manager Bill Kolodnicki has announced that the staff at the refuge in Baring will resume burns throughout the fall, now that the National Fire Preparedness Level has dropped.
For short periods during the burning, smoke may impair visibility on public roads that pass through the refuge. Visitors are encouraged to heed warning signs and slow down when visibility is impaired.
The refuge has been conducting prescribed burns for more than 20 years, and all operations are consistent with existing Department of the Interior and National Wildfire Coordinating Group Guidelines and policies.
Anyone interested in the refuge’s fire management program is invited to contact the refuge office at 454-7176.
