National Park Service to Burn Debris Piles This Winter
The National Park Service will be burning debris piles this winter at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (National Lakeshore). A fire crew will burn multiple debris piles in the Port Oneida Historic District along M-22 north of Glen Arbor, as weather permits. The piles were produced as part of an effort to preserve the historic landscape in Port Oneida.
