Stage 1 Fire Restrictions in Effect
Posted on Aug 12th, 2017
Stage 1 fire restrictions went into effect on August 11. That means open burning is not allowed anywhere except agency-approved recreational campsites or homeowner-built fire structures, such as fire pits built specifically for containing recreational fires. Such structures must include a 10 ft minimum radius containing no flammable materials. Flames are limited to 3 ft wide by 2 ft high. Charcoal BBQs are out, but propane grills are in. If you see campfires burning at the "swimming hole" on Hwy 21, call Boise County Dispatch at 208-392-4411 and inform the dispatcher of the situation. For more information, click here.

  • Spring/summer driving tips:
    • Slow down! Slower speeds will help keep washboards from developing on our roads. 
    • Remind any contractors you've hired that the speed limit at the Ranch is 15 mph.
    • Be on the lookout for walkers, runners, cyclists, and pets.
  • Rush Creek Parking limited to marked designated areas and limited to 48 hours.
  • Grab a broom and sweep out the Mail Center.
  • Keep culverts on/near your home clear of debris.

~ Firewise Tips & Tools ~
  • Rake and remove pine needles and dry leaves within minimum of 3 to 5 feet from your home’s foundation.
  • Collect downed tree limbs and broken branches and take them to the woody debris dump site (intersection of Meadow Lane and Wilderness Way).
  • Limb up lower tree branches to eliminate ladder fuels.
  • Develop and practice a home evacuation plan.
  • Become a member of the Wilderness Ranch Firewise Committee.
