BISHOP, Calif., November 17, 2022 — The USDA Forest Service, Inyo National Forest, will resume its prescribed burning program after a 90-day national pause. The pause, necessitated by recent escaped prescribed fires, was enacted by Forest Service Chief Randy Moore on May 12, 2022 then conditionally lifted on September 8 after a thorough national program review. Prior to burning, units on all National Forest System lands must implement a series of recommendations to ensure the safety and success of the prescribed burn. The Inyo National Forest has successfully implemented these recommendations and will implement prescribed burns as conditions allow.
