A prescribed burn will be undertaken this Thursday, July 14 at London Creek Environmental Reserve, Peachester, so don’t be alarmed if you see smoke.

The burn area is 1.5 hectares and will take place from 1– 6pm (weather permitting).

Smoke may be visible around local streets in the area as well as from Landsborough-Maleny Rd.

The aim of the burn is to reduce the volume of forest fuels and to create a mosaic pattern of burnt and unburnt areas within the reserve.

Doing this will help reduce the intensity of any subsequent wildfires if they were to occur and provide favourable conditions for natural forest regeneration.
