Controlled Burns at Gulf State Park Planned for May 25-26 and June 8-9
May 17, 2005
The Alabama State Parks Division of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, in cooperation with the Alabama Forestry Commission, is planning prescribed burns on May 25-26 and
The fuel load within the park has been reduced significantly by a series of burns this past winter. The Division feels that the further elimination of fuel rendered by Hurricane Ivan will create a safer environment in regard to wildfire within the park and outlying communities.
Every effort will be made to ensure safety and proper smoke management during this period. A reminder notification will be made during the week prior to the June 8-9 burn.
For further information, contact Forrest Bailey, 334-242-3901, or Gulf State Park 251-948-7275.
