TWO prescribed burns might be performed immediately (February 15), one at Kama Nature Reserve within the Molonglo Valley, and one at Pialligo.

ACT Parks and Conservation say the prescribed burn at Kama Nature Reserve is to enhance the situation of native box-gum woodlands, create a greater habitat for native species and scale back the chance of fireside within the space.

The burn at Pialligo Avenue is to clear constructed up weeds and permit for crop sowing throughout autumn.

Fireplace managers will oversee the burn, saying each effort is made to conduct the burns in climate circumstances that can minimise the impression of smoke, however momentary smoke cowl could also be seen throughout Canberra.

As a part of managing the prescribed burn a buffer zone might be created across the perimeter of every burn.
