The Town of Superior and the Legends of Superior Trails Inc. have coordinated a meeting with the Tonto National Forest to provide and update on the Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) report which was created in response to the Telegraph Fire that burned through the area earlier this summer. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 24, 2021 at 6 p.m. in the Media Center at the Superior Town Hall (Former Roosevelt Junior High) located at 199 N. Lobb Ave.
The presentation will be focused on the burned area directly around Superior and towards the Top of the World. The fire burned quickly through the forest south of Superior but did not scorch the ground as bad it was thought to be. This has helped for some vegetation to re-grow and in some areas prevented severe flooding from occurring. The presentation will educate the audience on burn severity and other impacts due to the fire.
