Prescribed Fire Talk

Prescribed Fire Talk

We will discuss the benefits of prescribed fire in the landscape and look closely at an area that was recently burned in the park. Wear good hiking shoes, dress for the weather,and be prepared for an off-trail walk in the woods, where you may have to grab a water pack and put out a fire!
