(Boulder City, NV) — Two prescribed burns are scheduled near Lake Mead over the next few weeks.

Park rangers say one will take place east of Arizona’s Cottonwood Cove, and another is planned near Las Vegas Bay.

The burns are being conducted to restore the landscape to a natural state and reduce the chances of a wildfire.
