Prescribed fire is a safe and important wildlife management tool that is used by Palm Beach County ERM to ensure a healthy & functioning ecosystem.
Take a hike with a County biologist and learn about the recent (February 28th) prescribed fire at Sweetbay Natural Area. You’ll see the amazing recovery that’s already happening in the burned area and compare that to an area that was burn several years ago as well as learn about the role fire plays in the environment.
Please bring water, appropriate clothing (hat, hiking shoes/boots, long-sleeved shirts and pants for bugs) and bug spray. There are no restroom facilities at this site.
