BOZEMAN – Properties managed by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks in Gallatin County have entered Stage-2 fire restrictions due to high fire danger.
This change follows a burn ban with similar restrictions enacted recently by Gallatin County.
Stage-2 restrictions at FWP sites ban campfires and allow smoking only in vehicles and areas 3 feet in diameter that are cleared of flammable materials. Gas or propane stoves that can be turned on and off are still allowed. Driving motorized vehicles off designated roads and trails is prohibited.
Fireworks are always prohibited at FWP sites.
Affected FWP sites in Gallatin County include: Axtell Bridge, Blackbird, Black’s Ford, Cameron Bridge, Cherry River, Cobblestone, Drouillard, Erwin Bridge, Fairweather, Four Corners, Gallatin Forks, Greycliff, Kirk Wildlife Refuge, Milwaukee, Shed’s Bridge, and Williams’ Bridge fishing access sites; Madison Buffalo Jump and Missouri Headwaters state parks; and Gallatin Wildlife Management Area.
Fire restrictions are in effect in other areas of Montana. For more information, visit mtfireinfo.org.
