Bourne: Prescribed Burn At Camp Edwards

A prescribed burn will be taking place at Joint Base Cape Cod Sunday and Monday.

The Massachusetts National Guard says the burn will take place at Camp Edwards and is intended for conservation management and restoration of the scrub oak shrubland natural community and dependent flora and fauna.

In addition officials say the operations will also provide critical wildfire hazard reduction along with improvement of soldier training opportunities, and firefighter training.
