DCNR planning prescribed burn in South Newton, Southampton townships
The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ Bureau of Forestry is advising hunters and other Michaux State Forest visitors that a prescribed burn is planned in early November that could affect more than 1,900 acres of the state forest.
Planned for South Newton and Southampton townships, Cumberland County, the prescribed burn is designed to reduce heavy fuel loading and the potential for extreme wildfire, control growth of invasive species, and improve forest regeneration and wildlife habitat.
