Cania Gorge hazard reduction burns start tomorrow
THE Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service will start planned burns at Cania Gorge National Park from tomorrow as part of the annual hazard reduction/conservation management program for parks and forests.
As a result, smoke may be seen in the Cania Gorge National Park area.
The aim of this burn is to reduce the volume of forest fuels and to create a mosaic pattern of burnt and unburnt areas within the park.
This will help reduce the intensity of any subsequent wildfires and provide favourable conditions for natural forest regeneration.
For more information, please call the Maryborough office of the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service on 4121 1800.
