Luera Mountains TREX

Magdalena, New Mexico

The Luera Mountains in southeast Catron County, New Mexico are a 15 mile long mountain range just south of the Plains of San Agustin. In early summer of 2017, a team of diverse prescribed fire practitioners put 6,094 acres of fire on the ground. 

The Module filled roles in the Incident Management Team, led the Fire Effects Module, and worked as a Burn Boss Type 2 trainee.

The prescribed fire helped to restore the mixed conifer, ponderosa pine, and pinon/juniper woodlands to conditions within their natural range of variability
