 The Importance of Fire to the Habitats of The Georgia Coastal Plain

    The disastrous fire in California’s Yosemite Valley is finally under control, but many questions remain about what happened and why.  Part of the answer lies in examining the historical role of fire in natural environments – a topic as relevant for the Low Country as it is for the western states.

The evening's program will feature Alison McGee, The Nature Conservancy South East GA Conservation Manager. Alison will explain how fire is an essential ecological process for many habitats in southern Georgia. Today, land managers use prescribed fire to maintain these habitats which, in turn, support the birds and other wildlife that we enjoy so much.

The program is free and open to the public. For more information call Beth Roth  912-658-6136.
