A Beautiful Controlled Burn at MBG on Tuesday, June 16th!

  • The western-most eight-acre sector we targeted for the burn was thoroughly covered by a good hot fire. The result will be visible and excellent in the coming year and beyond.
  • For the first time ever we invited the public to observe the fire event. This was a successful and interesting public/educational outreach.
  • Over the last dozen years since we began introducing fire into our Longleaf Forest, we have had 14 burns and we are making great progress in our techniques.

Local 15 News WPMI covered the event in their morning broadcast. Some of their coverage can be seen HERE (will open in new tab)
