Smoke plume from the prescribed burn on Sept. 28 is seen rising from the forest one hour after ignition.

Was our recent prescribed burn successful? What does it look like now? Ramon Garcia, wildland division chief, will answer these questions and more during a guided hike into the burned area Tuesday.
The hike will leave the nature center at 5:30 p.m. to explore areas touched by the recent fire and compare them with parts of the forest left unburned.
Participants will return by 6:30 p.m. with knowledge about forest fuels and local efforts to preserve our homes and ponderosa forests.
The Los Alamos Nature Center is open until 8 p.m. on Tuesdays. After the hike, there is time to visit the nature center and enjoy the free talk, “Wild Utah: America’s Red Rock Wilderness,” by Terri Martin from the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance.
