Burn at Gurranang

THE NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is planning a hazard reduction burn in Gurranang State Conservation Area, north of Grafton on the Summerland Way, tomorrow August 16.

NPWS Clarence Area Manager John Kennedy said the recent dry weather has provided an opportunity to carry out this burn between the railway line and the Summerland Way.

"The aim of this burn has been to reduce fuel loads adjacent to assets including residential properties adjacent the Gurranang State Conservation Area", Mr Kennedy said. 

"Tomorrow's burn follows on from a similar hazard reduction burn undertaken in the Reserve in May this year", he said.

"NPWS conducts hazard reduction burns in many of its reserves during cooler months for a range of purposes including asset protection for neighbours as well as park infrastructure, strategic fire control and to maintain the diversity of plants and animals", he said.

This burn is just one of many being undertaken by NPWS across NSW, as conditions allow.
During 2011-12, the National Parks and Wildlife Service treated almost 50, 000 hectares across the State."
For information about this burn contact the NPWS Grafton office. Telephone 02 6641 1500.
