PRESCRIBED OPEN BURNING APPROVAL for Installation Forester of Camp Atterbury

 

NOTICE OF PRESCRIBED OPEN BURNING APPROVAL

PB-156824

Notice is hereby given that a 5-year approval pursuant to 326 IAC 4-1 has been granted to Ryan Woods, Installation Forester, for Camp Atterbury Joint Maneuver Training Center, three miles east of Edinburgh within portions of Bartholomew, Brown, and Johnson Counties. The multiple-unit prescribed burns total roughly 6,041 acres of grasses, shrubs, understory growth, hardwood litter and leaf litter for management of wildlife habitat, invasive species and range safety in order to prevent wildfires. Of these 6,041 acres approved for burning, not all areas are burned annually. One, two or three year rotations of burn units depend on the use, need and upcoming training for the burn units. Due to the uncontrollable variables imposed by weather and unpredictable training schedules at a military training facility, it is estimated that roughly 2,500 acres will be burned annually. There are five types of controlled burning conducted at Camp Atterbury at the following legal land description areas based off the Second Principle Meridian:
