Fire is an important management tool for our Longleaf Pine forest at Harris Lake County Park. It depends on fire to be a healthy ecosystem. Learn how prescribed fires are conducted, what equipment is used, fire safety and the value for wildlife. We will travel by wagon to our Longleaf area and if conditions permit, we will conduct a demonstration burn in a small contained area. Space is limited in this program. Meet at the Longleaf Shelter.
