Did you know that sometimes forests and wild lands really need a good fire? Not a wildfire, but one that comes at the right place, at the right time and is under very careful control. Come and learn the history of fire in Florida and how prescribed burning benefits the plants and animals of the forest. You will hear from a “burn boss” exactly how the fires are started and controlled and see the equipment that they use.
