Sandia Ranger District Releases Part 3in the David Canyon Prescribed Fire Video Series

Albuquerque, NM – February 15, 2022 – In October 2021, Fire Management of the Cibola National Forest & National Grasslands (NF & NGs) implemented the David Canyon prescribed fire (RX) on the Sandia Ranger District. Fire crews successfully completed burning on approximately 148 acres in the David Canyon area, in the Manzanita Mountains.

Prescribed fires are one of the most effective tools available to resource managers for restoring fire-adapted ecosystems and reducing the risk of high-severity wildfire. Fire managers use prescribed fire to improve forest health, remove hazardous fuels, increase firefighter safety, enhance wildlife habitat, and protect communities and watersheds.

The Sandia Ranger District continues their educational video series on prescribe fire with the David Canyon Prescribed Fire Video Series Part 3: Day of Burn – Operations and Fire Effects. We encourage our public to view these videos to learn more about the operations of prescribed fire.
