Planned Burns across Nature Parks 2013-14

Posted on 12/11/2013 by Phillip Island Nature PArks

Each year the Nature Parks undertakes a range of planned burns to achieve the objectives of the Bass Coast Municipal Fire Management Plan 2011/12 – 2013/14 and the Nature Parks Fire Management Plan 2010 – 2014.
