PECOS, N.M. (KRQE) - The government is helping with operations to restore the Tres Lagunas burn scar north of Pecos.
It ripped through the Pecos River Canyon earlier this summer. The fire burned 16 square miles.
The forest service hired a helicopter firm to drop large amounts of straw mulch in the area and they have been at work since Monday.
The agency says the mulch will help hold moisture in place during monsoon rains, which will slow water flow and help seeds sprout.
The operation involves approximately 10 truck loads of straw each day.
The New York Times calls "American Idiot" "wonderfully raucous" and "emotionally charged."
