- Blue Ridge Ecological Reserve Prescribed Burn, Grouse Creek Unit
- The Department proposes to employ a controlled prescribed burn of the 1,061.45-acre Grouse Creek unit; one of three Units which comprise the Blue Ridge Ecological Reserve. The density and distribution of understory on the Grouse Creek Unit has reached a point where active management of the site is necessary to re-establish and sustain conditions for a suitable mosaic of habitat. The fire will benefit wildlife habitats by converting to a lower successional stage in the understory. This is accomplished by eliminating dense stands of vegetation.
