CA-YNP: #Yosemite Debris Pile Burning to Resume

Yosemite National Park Debris Pile Burning Schedule:

The Valley wood lot debris pile is being scheduled to be burned over the weekend of November 6.  A favorable weather window is predicted for the weekend that will facilitate smoke dispersal and minimize smoke impacts to Valley residents and visitors.

Wawona area debris piles burn projects will begin the week of November 8, if favorable weather persists.  The Wawona area vegetation piles include Bill’s Hill, near Forest Drive, and along the Wawona Road between Bishop Creek and the Wawona campground. 

Additionally:  From the lightning fires in early October, the Coyote fire is the only one showing any heat; it is one log smoldering.
Precipitation is predicted this weekend, with snow at higher elevations.

A burn permit has been obtained from Mariposa County for burning during permissive burn days.  All piles will be monitored and patrolled by fire personnel through the duration of the burning.

****REMINDER**** Every fire has the ability to be catastrophic. The wildland fire management environment has profoundly changed. Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
