Event Details

 

Florida land management agencies often receive mixed support from residents within the wildland urban interface boundary when introducing prescribed fire for the purposes of ecological restoration. The eastern side of the Julington Durbin Preserve has 200 condos and residents use the preserve as their backyard for jogging , biking and horseback riding trails. As part of the restoration strategy the district used fire along with harvesting, herbicide, mowing, chopping and hand cutting of sand pine. The district also worked with the local homeowners association to communicate to the community the purpose of their management actions. As a result the district has been able to burn the area multiple times and have achieved tremendous restoration success as well as the support of the neighborhood.

Join us on a tourof the preserve where we will discuss original conditions, treatments, challenges and successes.
