Prescribed burn in Hale Conservation Park
Date posted: 07 Nov. 2022
A prescribed burn is planned at Lincoln Basin on Hale Conservation Park on Sunday 6 November 2022, weather conditions permitting.
- The prescribed burn will start at 12.30pm and is likely to be completed by 6:00pm the same day.
- The area to be burnt is 7.5 hectares of land, along Hale Track within Hale Conservation Park, approximately 3km south-east of Williamstown.
- This burn aims to reduce fuel adjacent to Hale Track to reduce the risk of bushfire spreading within the Park. The burn will also reduce the likelihood of the whole park burning in a single bushfire event.
- Some smoke may be observed from Warren Road.
NPWSSA conducts a statewide program of prescribed burns to reduce the spread and intensity of bushfires, protect communities and enhances biodiversity. Prescribed burning is just one tool used to reduce fuel loads across strategic areas of public and private land. Prescribed burns will only be carried out when it is deemed safe to do so and may be cancelled at short notice if conditions change.
