National Park Service to Burn Debris Piles This Fall
The National Park Service will burn debris piles this fall at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. About 45 burn piles were produced as non-native Austrian pines were cut during an invasive tree removal and dune restoration project. Burning these piles will remove the woody material from what used to be a more open beach area, and allow native dune vegetation to again become established. The restoration area is located in a remote section of dunes about a mile southwest of the mouth of the Platte River.
