Prescribed fire at Gwynedd Wildlife Preserve

April 11, 2013

Yesterday we held our second prescribed fire of the year at Gwynedd Wildlife Preserve. (Last week a smaller Natural Lands Trust crew conducted a burn at the Serpentine Barrens at Stroud Preserve.)

Aubrey was able to make use of her training to join the crew and was the ignitor.

Conditions were dry but not as dry as we have experienced some years at Gwynedd. The fire burned well but you don’t see the high flame heights that we have seen other years.
