Control burn to decrease visibility Wednesday near Shell Beach

65
Boaters please use caution while navigating in the Shell Beach area as there could be reduced visibility on Wednesday June 19.
Oakland Plantation advises the following:
A planned prescribed burn along the Cane River riverbank at Oakland Plantation. The burn will remove the invasive vegetation, open the view shed from Oakland, and provide us with an opportunity to reassess the riverbank stabilization that was carried out a few years ago.  A window of opportunity to burn that section of riverbank is set for Wednesday, June 19 (weather dependent).
Wildland firefighters from the National Park Service (from Natchez Trace Parkway) and Kisatchie  National Forest will be handling the burn in coordination with the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office. Safety of our firefighters and the general public is our utmost priority.
For information about the prescribed burn please contact: Carrie A. Mardorf-Superintendent Cane River Creole National Historical Park 318-352-0383, x100.
