The Martha’s Vineyard Prescribed Fire Partnership held a controlled burn in Katama this week. Controlled burns are used to reduce the amount of fuel for wildfires, and to help to restore the health of plants and natural areas.

It is great to see all the amazing science work that The Nature Conservancy does on the Island. Prescribed fires are vital to the restoration of natural ecosystems. Can't wait to see the regeneration of the fields in the Spring! Congrats to Mike Whittemore and the whole TNC team.
