The Safford Ranger District of the Coronado National Forest plans to conduct slash pile burning activities on Mt. Graham in the Pinaleño Mountains over the winter months, beginning this week. Burning will be dependent upon weather conditions.
Slash piles will be burned within the Pinaleño Ecosystem Restoration Project. This project area extends from the Snow Flat campground along Hwy 366 to the Columbine Administrative site. Fire crews will be present to take action as needed throughout the projects.
