There are no burns planned for 2023 and 2024.
Why does the Army conduct prescribed burns? Burns are conducted to both encourage recovery of endangered fire dependent plant species and to facilitate continued munitions clean-up. To protect sensitive species, the prescribed burn season is limited in duration from July to December.
