Jasper National Park has lifted its fire ban as of today, May 24.
Parks Canada says recent rain, combined with cooler temperatures in the forecast, have reduced the likelihood of human-caused wildfire ignition.
The fire ban in the townsite has also been lifted, according to the Municipality of Jasper.
As of Wednesday, May 24, there were 65 active wildfires burning in Alberta.
Campfires are permitted in campgrounds and public areas that have designated metal fire pits.
Parks Canada uses science and up-to-date practices to manage fires. Weather, landscape, vegetation, fire behaviour, public safety and values at risk are considered in fire management, the agency says.
