Clearing up Before Fire Season

Our Fire Season is fast approaching and here at the Refuge we have a fire management plan. Part of that plan is clearing up and burning of the old logging piles, as well as keeping the grasses in a manageable condition.

We keep and recyle any hollows we find as they are good for nesting animals and also any useable timber is used for the Homestad heating and cooking. Some old Timber is also recycled and will also find it's way into, and part of, any of the enclosures. Oops forgot to mention fencing too.
If you look hard you can see the Firefighting unit in the background. 1,000litres and pumps all in one.
