Elk NetworkHow Does Fire Affect Wildlife?

Conservation | May 27, 2017

Prescribed fire has a definite impact on wildlife habitat—a positive impact! For example, RMEF helped fund 47 prescribed fire projects on the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest alone as of 2016. It’s really important to improve elk habitat. Much of this elk habitat evolved with fire

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game, in conjunction with the RMEF and the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest, produced a series of informational videos to highlight the importance of prescribed burning.
