Wolf Lake Fire
$100.00 – $1,500.00
Over a hundred naturally occurring forest fires a year might burn in Yellowstone; yet rarely does a fire burn more than a fraction of an acre. These lightning-caused fires usually burn only the one tree where the fire started. It takes a combination of low relative humidity and hot, dry wind to carry a fire beyond its origin.A natural, necessary and powerful process, wildland fire has shaped Yellowstone's ecosystem for thousands of years. Reinvigoration of vegetation communities, wildlife densities, soil formation, insect and disease control, changes in stream channels plus other consequences of fires will continue to make Yellowstone a wild, healthy, and vibrant place.
