Three prescribed burns this month

 

BC Parks and the Rocky Mountain Trench Ecosystem Restoration Program have planned low-intensity controlled fires at the following sites on Crown land and at Premier Lake Provincial Park:

• 156 hectares at the junction of Hwys 95 and 3/93 near Isadore’s Canyon northeast of Cranbrook.

• 166 hectares south of Ta Ta Creek in the vicinity of the old Kimberley Airport on Hwy 95A. The public is asked to avoid using this popular recreation area while burning is underway.

• 150 hectares in the Yankee-Canuck Lakes area on the east side of Premier Lake Provincial Park. Hiking trails in this area will be closed during the burn.
