No Fireworks on National Forests for New Year’s
The U.S. Forest Service reminds visitors that fireworks are prohibited
on National Grassland and National Forest lands year-round, regardless
of weather conditions or holidays. Regulations are enforced and
violation is punishable as a misdemeanor by a fine of not more than
$5000, or imprisonment of not more than six months, or both. Forest
visitors are reminded to ensure all fires are extinguished and cold to
the touch before leaving them.
