Dependent on suitable weather, ACT Parks and Conservation will look to commence a prescribed burn Monday 25 May 2020. This burn will likely continue for the next fortnight if suitable conditions continue. Due to the heavy fuels and large fuel class, it is likely that smoke will continue for weeks as the piles smolder. Every effort will be made to reduce the impact of smoke on the community.
