Project Description: The action involves a proposed surface fire on 77 acres to consume grass and brush species in the months of March, April, or September. The 77 acre treatment area consists of 3 different grass fields, ranging in size from 11 acres to 35 acres. It is not expected that all of the target grass fields will be treated in the same year, therefore, depending upon weather and available personnel, these treatments may take place in 2007, 2008, or 2009. None of the target grass fields will be treated more than once during this period. The fire is intended to rejuvenate grass species and to reduce the amount of encroaching brush. These grass fields are being managed under the approved Long Pond Unit Management Plan. The maintenance of these grass fields is important to the goal of biodiversity expressed in the Plan. Some of these grass fields have been identified as critical habitat for bird species such as the Henslow’s sparrow and the grasshopper sparrow.
