Debris Cleanup at FWC Carter Creek (8/17/2019)

We will be working along the edge of a section of Carter Creek removing roofing tiles, tires and other debris. Removing this debris will restore the habitat to it's natural state and make it safer for biologists to conduct prescribed fires in the area. Tires and roofing shingles can release toxic fumes when burned and create an unsafe environment for people and wildlife.
