Helimulching Operations to Begin in Kyle Canyon

MT. CHARLESTON, Nev. -- Efforts will begin on Sunday to help stabilize the hillsides in Kyle Canyon recently burned by the Carpenter 1 Fire.

Straw will be transported by a helicopter and applied over the burned areas to protect soils from erosion and provide ground cover.

The helimulching will be done on nearly 400 acres on the north facing slopes in upper Kyle Canyon. It's expected the process will take one week with the helicopter operations occurring between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily.

Bristlecone, Bonanza, Trail Canyon, Robbers Roost, Mummy Springs, Telephone Canyon, Fletcher Canyon, Sawmill Loop, and Mary Jane Falls are open. North Loop is open to Charleston Peak only.

Due to the hazards left by the Carpenter 1 Fire, Griffith Peak, South Loop, Cathedral Rock, Echo/Little Falls and the Lovell Canyon Trail System remain closed.
