Twin Buttes Open Space Prescribed Burn

The Durango Parks and Recreation Department is working with Durango Fire Protection District and Twin Buttes to complete a prescribed burn of slash piles from fire mitigation in the Twin Buttes Open Space.  Prescribed fire smoke may be hazardous to your health.   The goal of this maintenance project is to decrease wildfire risk by burning the slash piles from previous fire mitigation efforts in the area.  The lower loop will remain open to the public, however users should be aware that Durango Fire Protection District staff and vehicles will be in the area.  Burning will commence on Tuesday, October 16 and continue through the month of October, dependent upon weather conditions.

For additional Information, contact the Parks and Recreation Department Administrative Office at (970) 375-7321 or by email at rec@durangogov.org
