Prescribed burn at Mt Boothby Conservation Park
Subject to suitable weather conditions, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) will undertake a prescribed burn at Mt Boothby Conservation Park (the Park), 30 kilometres south-east of Meningie, between Thursday, April 26 and Sunday, April 29.
The burn will affect about 270 hectares in the north-west of the Park adjacent to Richardson Road. Some edging has already been completed to contain this burn.
Visibility in the immediate area may be impacted by smoke. Motorists will need to follow directions, slow down and take extreme care.
The purpose of the prescribed burn is to reduce the bushfire risk within the Park and to create a mosaic of ecological vegetation classes. DENR fire crews will monitor the fire-ground until the area is declared safe. SA Country Fire Service (CFS) crews will be on standby if required.
