Each year the Prescribed Fire Division of Big Cypress National Preserve attempts to burn more that 50,000 acres in a safe and managed way.

From the Park’s Division webpage:

“Natural fire, prescribed fire, hazard fuel reduction, and fire effects monitoring help restore natural processes, while providing for firefighter and public safety.”
