Prescribed fire season

Many people ask about management techniques, and the most economical and best for ecosystem health, in my mind, is prescribed fire. We conduct these on Corkscrew for a variety of reasons. And recently we did one just north of the exit boardwalk at the Visitor Center. Our target habitats were wet prairie and pine flatwoods. The burn went well and hopefully there will be zephyr lilies in the burned area in the coming weeks!
