Chadron Fire Recovery

Rancher Sandy Montague Roes still gets emotional about the 2012 wildfire that devastated her northwest Nebraska ranch. Today, the question isn’t “if”, but “when” the next fire happens. This concern united ranchers, volunteer firefighters, and foresters in developing and implementing conservation methods with the common goal of preserving Nebraska's Pine Ridge Country.
