San Angelo State Park will conduct a prescribed burn starting Monday and continuing through Friday.
Because specific weather conditions are required to conduct an effective and safe prescribed burn, Texas Parks & Wildlife Department staff could not provide a specific time for the burn. Some areas of the park, including some trails, will be closed to the public during the burn.
Prescribed burns improve habitat for wildlife by restoring forest and prairie habitats that were historically maintained by natural fires. They also reduce the amount of available fuels, such as leaf litter, fallen branches, undergrowth and dead trees, that accumulate naturally and from storm events.
