**Fire Danger**

The grasslands are currently under extremely dry conditions on the Eastern Plains. Please be aware where you’re parking!

Tall grass and a hot muffler can start a fire under these conditions so park on the dirt roads whenever possible.

If this isn’t feasible or will inconvenience other drivers try to park on a bare spot or at least over very short grass.  There have been numerous fires in the area over the last few weeks, one yesterday was only 8 miles from CPER HQ, so please be careful.

Prescribed burns are one thing, respect the fire danger and don’t start a wild fire!
