Prescribed fires – Spring 2016
Parks Canada successfully conducted low intensity prescribed fires at Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site on Monday, April 25th. Prescribed fires were part of a long-term Acadian Forest research and monitoring project started in 2010.
Parks Canada partnered with the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources and the North Queens Fire Association to safely conduct these prescribed fires within two 2.2 hectare mixed forest plots in the Eel Weir and Loon Lake area.
Eel Weir Road is now open at the Gold Mines trail head.
