Higbee Beach Controlled Burn

[Controlled burn at Higbee Beach Wildlife Management Area, Cape May, NJ today. Burning reduces the fuel load, and also makes for some good habitat. Watch the burned areas for Vesper Sparrows when they migrate through Cape May in April, and for other bare ground loving species in general. The burn also releases nutrients; these burned areas will green up first in the spring.]
