*CANCELED* Public Prescribed Burn Demonstration

This event has been canceled.

The 2020 interpretive theme for North Carolina State Parks is the "Year of Fire." Jockey's Ridge State Park is planning to conduct a prescribed burn the week of April 27, 2020. Forecasted weather conditions during this time frame will determine if the burn occurs. The purpose is to raise awareness about the benefits of burning natural areas. The event will be open to the public for viewing. This will be a coordinated effort between North Carolina State Parks and the North Carolina Forest Service. The burn unit will involve a small wooded area adjacent to the main park road and the visitor center's parking area. All are invited to attend.

Date of Event: 
Monday, April 27, 2020 - 8:00am to Friday, May 1, 2020 - 5:00pm

Start Location: 
Visitor Center parking area
