Boundary Waters Prescribed Burns

The USFS is hoping to do a couple of prescribed burns in and around the BWCA this weekend.  There will be a few entry points closed around mid-trail off of Poplar Lake for a couple of days.  The Forest Service also hopes to do the Saucer Lake Burn if the weather cooperates.  These burns were postponed last week due to an almost 2" rainfall in places along the Trail.  It has been dry and windy the past couple of days so that has helped to make conditions a little more conducive to burning.  If you are on the Trail then keep your eyes open for extra traffic as there will be quite a few people around working on the burns.
