Fire season may be cooling off, but crews are still working on fire management.
The Boise National Forest will do prescribed burns of about 30,000 acres this fall, starting in October, according to a press release.
The burns will improve habitat for wildlife and mitigate wildfires next summer, according to the release.
Recreationists and hunters should avoid the areas under prescribed burns. People can find out if an area is affected by calling BNF hotline at 208-373-4208 or checking online.
Areas near Lowman, Cascade, Emmett and Mountain Home will get prescribed burns, according to the release. Forest officials will post signage around impacted areas.
