Prescribed Burn Planned for Gorham Scout Camp, South of Cundiyo

Taos, NM – During the month of December, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Taos Field Office will conduct a prescribed burn at Gorham Scout Camp, south of Cundiyo, New Mexico, weather permitting.  Burn operations could be on any day within December 7 through December 31, 2015.  The objectives of the burn are to remove slash (limbs and branches) created as part of thinning projects in order to reduce wildfire risk, improve ecosystem health, and enhance habitat for wildlife.

 

This project is being implemented to minimize the risk of a large-scale, high-intensity wildfire spreading to, or from the community of Cundiyo.  Smoke could be visible from the prescribed burn throughout the month of November.

 

For further information, please contact BLM Fire Management Specialist Kyle Sahd at (575) 751-4767 or BLM Public Education Specialist Mark Lujan at 575-758-8851.
