Burning Brush Piles

We didn’t have much of Winter in 2011/2012 season, but we did manage to burn 185 brush piles.  Here are a few pictures from the Indian Springs location at the Scuppernong Springs Nature Trail.

Our good friend John Mesching helped us out.

Lindsay and I met in November of 2011 while taking the Basic Wildland Fire Series offerings S-130, S-190 and L-180 at the Madison Area Technical College  www.madisoncollege.edu and he fell in love with the Springs the first time he came out to help me burn.

You may have noticed new brush piles along the Nature Trail.  We plan to burn them this Winter.
