State to burn part of Nenana Ridge for grouse

The Alaska Departments of Fish and Game and Natural Resources and the Ruffed Grouse Society are working together to burn portions of Nenna Ridge to benefit grouse. The 46 acre burn must occur after snowmelt but before leafout, so the window is very short.

The project is designed to kill the older aspens so as to allow new stands of young aspens needed by young grouse. Read the entire news release >>>
