CHEYENNE– The Wyoming Game and Fish Department partnered with the Bureau of Land Management and the Forest Service on recent prescribed burn in the Wyoming Range west of LaBarge.

It is just one of the many habitat improvement projects being implemented under the Wyoming Range Mule Deer Initiative.

This burn is designed to set back the encroachment of conifer trees on aspen, thus promoting aspen and other nutritious plants and shrubs that will benefit mule deer and many other wildlife species well into the future.
