Hi,
Just to keep you informed. I have met with the burn boss and things are going well.
Looking at burning 10 acres.  There might be a little shift in wind sending some smoke landward,
but things look good.

CROCKER NECK CONSERVATION AREA

PRESCRIBED BURN SCHEDULED

* WEATHER PERMITTING* FRIDAY APRIL 14, 2017

When: Scheduled from 8:00AM to 4:00PM

PLEASE KEEP YOUR DISTANCE FROM BURN AREA

WHERE CONTRACTORS ARE WORKING

Why: This type of controlled prescribed fire management promotes fresh growth of new plants, provides habitat and foraging opportunities for local wildlife, and also serves as wildfire prevention and refuge for people caught in between a wildfire event. Surrounding neighborhoods are protected by reducing the chance of wildfire in Crocker Neck by conducting these low burning controlled fires on a regular basis.
