Public Forum to Address Burn at Memorial Forest

On Thursday, February 27, SVT will lead a public forum about the upcoming prescribed burn at the Desert Natural Area and Memorial Forest. The burn, which is part of a long-term project to restore important habitat at these properties on the Marlborough-Sudbury line, will be held this spring, possibly as early as March.

SVT and the City of Marlborough are working on the habitat restoration with MassWildlife and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR). Laura Mattei, SVT's Director of Stewardship, and Priscilla Ryder, City of Marlborough Conservation Agent (pictured), recently walked the property to define fire breaks for the burn. 

At the Public Forum, Laura will more fully explain the project and will answer questions from the audience. This is a great chance to learn about this project and about prescribed burns in general.
