Possible Controlled Burn on Campus
UNCW is working with the North Carolina Division of Forest Resources to conduct a controlled burn of selected tracts (one to two burn units of 25-40 acres each) within the longleaf pine forest on the main campus. The burns are tentatively planned for Thursday, Feb. 27 or Friday, Feb. 28 as weather conditions are expected to be ideal that day.
The forest areas are located on the northeast side of campus, in the general vicinity of the Ropes Course.
Additional information will be communicated later this week, when it becomes more certain that weather conditions will support conducting the controlled burn.
