Benefits of Prescribed Fire

There are many benefits to prescribed fire which include reducing the hazard of a wildfire and improving wildlife habitat. Come out to the park to learn about fire dependent ecosystems and how burning the leaf litter is necessary for the health of the species that live there.  We will also discuss how we will be conducting the prescribed fire on the mainland property here at Hammocks Beach State Park this winter.
