Prescribed Burn Planned at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore
The National Parks Service plans to do a prescribed burn as soon as this week at the Sleeping Bear Dunes.
It’s the start of a strategy to use fire as a management tool for years to come.
The plan is to burn more than 900 acres in the national lakeshore’s Platte River district in Benzie County.
A campground and some of small roads and trails will be closed to visitors during the burning period.
