Contractors will be doing invasive species work starting September 20, on 10 acres at the end of Willow Street. This mechanical/chemical treatment is in preparation for the tree removal that will take place at this site starting in mid-October. There will not be any trail closures with this work.
We cannot provide a specific schedule for prescribed fires in a given area due to the unpredictability of weather and fuel conditions. If you would like to be notified the morning of a prescribed fire, please subscribe below.
