Why Prescribed Fire


Prescribed Fire has long been used to restore the health and robustness of native vegetation.  It enhances habitat for wildlife, increases plant diversity, releases nutrients for the soil, reduces invasive plants, and decreases the likelihood of wildfires.

"Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife are in fact plans to protect man."

Stewart Udall
