Wildfire Recovery Efforts Receive Funding

Wildfire Recovery Efforts Receive Funding

The Burro Fire scorched over 27,000 acres of land near Tucson last month, and recovery efforts are under way.

The Coronado National Forest has received funding to begin aerial seeding of over 1,000 acres that were damaged by the raging blaze. Additional projects were approved to establish safety measures for developed sites, roads and trails within the affected area, as well as clear drainage channels of debris and improve road stabilization.

Over the next several weeks, forest officials will monitor this work to determine how successful these projects are at minimizing the overall damage from the wildfire and helping to improve plans and resources for the future.

Several significant rainstorms have caused a high flow of water through the burned area, and the wild weather may continue throughout the rest of the summer. For the most up-to-date information from the National Forest Service, visit the official website here.
