Prescribed Burn - Laying down fire
Prescribe Burn Notice

We are planning to prescribe burn (with support from the Alabama Forestry Commission) in the next two to four weeks.  The areas scheduled for burning are grasslands in our Houston Unit and longleaf pine restoration sites in our Davis-Clark and Sneed's Pond units.  Please remember to park such that you are not blocking gates, roads, fire lines, or field access.  We ask that you be patient if we need to temporarily close roads or management units with little notice
