Fire on the Plains Postponed

We are sad to announce that we will be postponing fire on the Plains due to the rainy forecast. We are planning to reschedule for later in the spring. So, check back for a reschedule date.

Join us at the Kreher Preserve and Nature Center on Saturday, February 10th from 10 am-1 pm for “Fire on the Plains!”. There is no charge for this interactive, all-ages, educational program that will explore how fire shapes the natural landscape of the forest. Auburn University School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences Extension faculty, Fire Ecology Experts and the Alabama Forestry Commission will assist with prescribed fire demonstrations teaching how good fires can help prevent bad fires from occurring. Guests will be able to assist with the prescribed burns (weather permitting).

Fun and educational activities will also be available at our longleaf pine ecosystem including a longleaf game for the children. The Auburn Fire Department will be available to answer any questions you have about fire safety and to explore their truck and equipment. Smokey the Bear will teach us how to prevent wildfires and have a safe camp fire.

Camp fire demonstrations will be available for participants at our amphitheater with music from the Fireside Pickers. Hot cocoa, coffee and s’mores kits will be available for purchase along with Firetruck Bar-B-Que’s food firetruck for lunch purchase.
