a big Thank you to you the sandpine alliance

December 2017

We would like to extend a big thank you to the terrific team members of the Sandpine Alliance, who conducted a very successful Prescribed Burn on the Orange Trail this week. 

Brent and his team from Wildland Restoration International have worked diligently the last few weeks on fire preparations, opening up the canopy, by removing oak trees and conducting targeted herbicide applications. This paved the way for David's team of the Sandpine Alliance, to conduct the burn. Weather conditions this week were optimal, and the burn was textbook perfect, with minimal smoke and no disturbance to nearby residents and roads.

The Sandpine Alliance is a social capitalist enterprise working to preserve nature and better humanity. We are extremely grateful to them, for running this Prescribed Fire, which is vital in our ongoing Sandhill Habitat restoration efforts.
