The week of November 28th may produce clouds of smoke coming out of our National Forest areas just outside of Bozeman. There are prescribed burns scheduled, although they are weather dependent. City of Bozeman crews along with the Forest Service fire crews will be attempting to get rid of significant burn piles. These piles are located within the Bozeman Municipal Watershed (BMW) area within the Sourdough Drainage, south of Bozeman. These controlled burns are to take cake of large debris piles and get rid of fire fuel. According to the press release from the Forest Service, "The Sourdough Trail will be closed shortly for public and firefighter safety while burning efforts are underway." The exact dates, times and locations of closures will be released as weather allows.
