Bur­rum Na­tional Park has burn on

Isis Town and Country - - News -

QUEENS­LAND Parks and Wildlife Ser­vice will spend the rest of this week burning off in the Woodgate sec­tion of Bur­rum Coast Na­tional Park.

QPWS started the burn on Tues­day as part of the an­nual haz­ard re­duc­tion/con­ser­va­tion man­age­ment pro­gram for parks and forests.

As a re­sult, smoke may be seen within the Woodgate town­ship and ad­ja­cent to Woodgate Rd.

It is ex­pected to last a week.

QPWS said the aim of the burn was to re­duce the vol­ume of for­est fu­els and to cre­ate a mo­saic pat­tern of burnt and un­burnt ar­eas within the park.

This will help re­duce the in­ten­sity of any sub­se­quent wild­fires and pro­vide favourable con­di­tions for nat­u­ral for­est re­gen­er­a­tion.

Phone QPWS’s Woodgate of­fice on 4126 8810 for more in­for­ma­tion about the burn.
