MORAN, Wyo. (AP) — A prescribed burn is in the works for 72 acres of Bridger-Teton National Forest on the boundary of Grand Teton National Park.

Forest officials say the burn will happen this weekend if conditions are right.

One goal is to help the growth of aspen, sagebrush and Douglas fir to improve forage for elk, moose, deer and sage grouse. Another goal is to reduce the intensity of future fires in the area.

The prescribed burn will occur four and a half miles south of Moran Junction.

Forest officials say the burn will create smoke but no trails will be closed and the burn shouldn't have much effect on elk hunting in the area.
