Burning to make it better

Hammocks Beach State Park staff conducted a controlled burn on 115 acres at the park in early March. Included in the burn was the section between FFA Road and 4H Camp Road. This is the third burn on this section of woodland, with the last burn taking place in 2019. The main purposes of the burn are to reduce the fuel load on the ground to prevent wildfires and to help restore some of the longleaf pine habitat. Along with Hammocks Beach staff, members of the park system’s natural resources team assisted in the burn. (Pete Rulon photo)
