Vouchers for an EKiP pass can be obtained at www.everykidinapark.gov.

News Release - (November 10, 2016)
(LARAMIE, Wyo.) Nov. 10, 2016 – Despite a warm, dry fall across the Medicine Bow and Routt National Forests in Colorado and Wyoming, shorter days and imminent winter weather are prompting fire personnel to begin preparation for slash pile burning.
Hundreds of piles are estimated to remain on the two National Forests, even after many years of this type of work. Forest users and the public should be aware of and expect to see smoke, as many piles will be burned near communities, travel routes, and popular recreation areas. The burning of highly visible piles will be advertised closer to the date of ignition and questions should be directed to your local Ranger District Office.
