Prescribed Burns This Week at Lake Mead

Prescribed Burn Lake Mead Boulder City, NV

After yesterday’s wild weather, and depending upon how that rolls this week, do keep in mind that the National Park folks are planning to do prescribed burns down at the Lake Mead National Rec. area. So if you see smoke down that way it is likely all OK.

According to their news release:

The first project, located in the old Hemenway Campground, will complete approximately 7-acres of piles accumulated from hazardous fuels projects from the Boulder Beach Area. This project will be visible to travelers on Lakeshore Road, Boulder City, Lake Las Vegas, residents and visitors at Lake Mead RV Village, Alan Bible Visitor Center, Boulder Beach Campground, and surrounding areas near Boulder Beach. It is planned to start on January 17 and be completed in one day.

The second project, Rogers Spring, is located just off Northshore Road three miles west of Stewart’s Point and about 9 miles north of Echo Bay. The Rogers Spring Project will treat approximately 3-acres of dried vegetation piles remaining from a habitat restoration project by the park’s Resources Management team. By burning them in place, the park is reducing the risk from unwanted human caused fires in this unique habitat area and allowing the nutrients to naturally cycle back into the ecosystem.

The Rogers Spring Parking Area will be closed from 6:00 a.m. January 18, 2023, through 5:00 pm January 19, 2023 as a safety measure for visitors. Additionally, smoke may be visible to travelers on Northshore Road and visitors to the northern section of the park.
