Little River Canyon National Preserve prepares for a prescribed burn. Between March 5th and the 14th, areas east of the river within the Wildlife Management Area may be burned if needed. For the safety of firefighters and visitors, the park will close all roads east of the river before the burns.
No driving or horseback riding will be allowed until the fire is out and it is safe to enter the area. Park staff will assist the professional team of firefighters under the leadership of the Mississippi Zone Fire Management Team, as well as staff from various parks.
