BWNR has a certified prescribed burn manager in charge of the burn and local fire departments will be notified the morning of the burn to ensure the utmost safety.

The burn is expected to take no more than 6 hours and will begin at approximately 10 a.m. Weather conditions will be closely monitored throughout the burn.
