Lolo National Forest Burns

The NWTF, USDA Forest Service and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation leveraged a total of $67,500 for controlled burning to stimulate a variety of plant species in NWTF’s Northern Rocky Mountain focal landscape.

Prescribed fire restored ponderosa pine savannas while rejuvenating grasses and forbs in the Seeley Lake Ranger District of the Lolo National Forest of Horseshoe West, Montana.

Last spring the district accomplished 450 acres of burning which vastly improved habitat for wild turkeys, dusky grouse, elk and mule deer.
