Prescribed Burn, Dunlop

The ACT Parks and Conservation Service wishes to advise that, subject to suitable weather and fuel moisture conditions, a prescribed burn will take place at East Dunlop tomorrow, Tuesday 10 April 2018.

The nine hectare burn is planned for a portion of the eastern side of the Dunlop Grasslands Nature Reserve, accessible from the end of Douglas Waterhouse Drive, Dunlop.

The burn is being conducted to improve the grassland by reducing the cover of exotic grass tussocks and stimulating native grass regeneration. The burn will also reduce the fire hazard and provide protection to nearby housing.

A map showing the location of all burn sites is available at the Upcoming Prescribed Burns Page.
