Prescribed burn at Cleland Conservation Park tomorrow

Date posted: 02 Oct. 2019

A prescribed burn is planned in Cleland Conservation Park tomorrow, Thursday 3 October 2019, weather permitting.

  • The prescribed burn will start at 1pm and should be complete by 7pm.
  • It will affect about 10.4 hectares in the park.
  • The burn will be in Cleland Conservation Park, at the corner of Mount Lofty Summit Road and Gores Road, which is about 1km south of Cleland Wildlife Park.
  • No road closures will be in place for the burn, however Mount Lofty Summit Road will be reduced to one lane and traffic will be diverted onto Springg Road and Gores Road.

The burn will be carried out by the South Australian National Parks and Wildlife Service with local CFS Volunteers. A crew will remain on site until it is safe to leave.

The objective of this burn is to reduce fuels in the area to prevent the spread of bushfire and to reduce the risk of fire spreading to neighbouring plantation and native scrub blocks. It is part of a statewide program of prescribed burning planned to protect communities and assets at risk.

Prescribed burns will only be carried out when it is deemed safe to do so and may be cancelled at short notice.
