Event » Red Hills Fire Festival

Description:

Attend this all-ages event to experience, enjoy and learn about the special natural process of fire in southern pinelands. The festival will include wagon rides, wildlife, live prescribed fire, equipment demonstrations, fire talks with experts, kids' activities, four of our favorite food trucks, and live music from Clever Girl! Fire has been a natural part of these forests for many thousands of years. Prescribed fire is a safe way to apply this natural process, ensure ecosystem health, and reduce wildfire risk. Weather permitting, we plan to share the experience of prescribed fire with you. Our team of certified burners will demonstrate how they control the burn to safely restore important habitat for animals and reduce the risk of destructive wildfires. Find us on Facebook at Red Hills Region and check the Events section to let us know if you are interested.  Free! No official RSVP needed.
