FYI: Scheduled Control Burn in Toll Canyon Open Space

From our friends at Basin Recreation:

Snyderville Basin Special Recreation District (the District) has scheduled a control burn in Toll Canyon Open Space. Under the direction of the Summit County Fire Warden, slash piles remaining from the 2016 fire mitigation and forest health project will be burned. The burning of these piles is necessary as they present a continual fuel load that needs to be properly mitigated as part of the project guidelines.

Burning operations are planned for some time in late January through late February based on the required ideal conditions for snow cover, weather conditions and air quality regulations to ensure safety. Burn piles will leave a temporary visual scar on the landscape. The District is dedicated to minimizing that scar as much as possible in Summer of 2018 by way of reseeding, raking debris and disbursing ash.

Additional signage will be posted while the area is closed. The District is committed to the safety and wellbeing of the public and our public lands. Additional information can be found on our new page https://www.basinrecreation.org/about/news/. Questions should be directed to Open Space Management Supervisor, Jessica Kirby, 435-649-1564 x26 or email jessica@basinrecreation.org.
