Prescribed burn planned at Morro Bay State Park
–There is a planned prescribed burn scheduled at Morro Bay State Park happening between Tuesday, April 21, and Friday, May 1. Ignitions may start as early as 7 a.m. with fires out by approximately 5 p.m.
Burn piles in Morro Bay State Park are located along the Wildland-Urban Interface between Ridgeway St. and Balboa St and extending to La Loma Ave.
The intent is to reduce fuel loads associated with pine pitch canker, drought, and bug kill in tree mortality areas, to increase forest health and enhance forest resiliency, and aid in native plant restoration. Fuel reduction will also decrease the threat of wildfires near local communities.
