The National Park Service will burn piles of woody debris at Tuzigoot National Monument and Montezuma Well. The burn date is scheduled for March 20th, 2019 and will be dependent on weather. The piles of debris consist of invasive plants removed from Tavasci Marsh at Tuzigoot and the pasture trails from Montezuma Well.
Fire managers will take advantage of existing clearings to minimize the chance of fire spread and potential spotting from the piles. The piles will be ignited by firefighters and monitored until the piles are completely out.
