Prescribed Fire at Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge
This spring, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
at Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge will be conducting prescribed burns. These burns will accomplish Refuge management objectives for
reducing hazardous accumulations of fuel, thinning dense stands of forest
regeneration, and improving forage and cover for wildlife. Thinning of forests
provides for a more natural tree density which benefits native wildlife and
helps to minimize potential insect infestations.
