Camp Edwards Prescribed Burning Planned

BOURNE – Prescribed burns will be carried out on October 11 and October 12 at Joint Base Cape Cod.

Pending the conditions, the fire will mitigate wildland fuel hazards, provide training for firefighters, and simulate natural developments.

Camp Edwards is the home to dozens of plant and animal species that are listed by the state. These prescribed burns are meant to offer a comparable effect offered by natural fire and to provide ecological benefits.
