THE ROLE OF FIRE IN FLORIDA’S ECOSYSTEMS

Friday, 9 – 11 a.m.
Join Sarasota County Environmental Specialist Jeff Weber for a guided hike during “Prescribed Fire Awareness Week” at this rural eastern Sarasota County site.
Participants will learn about the history of fire in Florida and how Sarasota County uses prescribed burning to manage many of our natural area parks and preserves. Explore recently-burned areas at Old Miakka Preserve and learn about how fire-dependent habitats and wildlife species have evolved to coexist with periodic fires and how they respond and thrive after an area is burned.
