Wildfire on the Fishlake National Forest, Utah

Team South is spending the day around their campground in the Apache Sitgreaves National Forest. This area was recently burned by the massive Rodeo-Chediski wildfire, a human-caused fire which burned over 400,000 acres earlier this year, claiming hundreds of houses and other buildings.

A Forest Service ranger will take the team on a tour of the burned area, and they will spend the day learning about preventing wildfires, protecting homes near forests, and using fire as a natural force for ecosystem health.

Due to technical difficulties, Team South will be out of touch for about a week. Please check back soon for journal postings and more pictures.
