TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) The Bureau of Land Management and Clif Bar Caking Company will team up to plant sagebrush in the Magic Valley where a fire scorched the land. The BLM Twin Falls District says the two groups will participate in the National Public Lands Day on Oct. 20 by planting sagebrush on a 1,000 acre area where the Mammoth Fire flared up this summer. Roughly 10-20,000 Wyoming sagebrush seedlings will be planted by Clif employees. BLM says the area is just off of Highway 75. The blaze burned a total of nearly 50,000 acres and destroyed a home.

"This is a great opportunity to hasten the recovery of the land burned in the Mammoth Fire and enhance our area's natural environment," said BLM Twin Falls District Manager Mike Courtney in a prepared statement. "Those are goals that the BLM and the Clif Bar Company share."
