Audubon To Host Talk By Georgia DNR Fire Safety Officer, Shan Cammack, to discuss prescribed fire and conservation

Oconee Rivers Audubon Society is hosting Shan Cammack, Georgia Department of Natural Resources (Georgia DNR) fire safety officer, for a talk on "The Important Role of Fire in Conservation Efforts." Cammack will discuss fire management in a changing climate, prescribed fire management, and some of the bigger picture issues and research questions to consider in ecological burning. Cammack has enjoyed a twenty- year career with the Georgia DNR. She currently serves as the Fire Safety Officer for the Nongame Conservation Section and Georgia DNR representative for the Interagency Burn Team and Georgia Prescribed Fire Council. Shan is an engaging speaker, and because fire plays an important role in creating and maintaining habitat for birds, this talk should be a great one! Please join us!


The meeting will take place on Thursday, January 4 at 7pm at Sandy Creek Nature Center.

Prescribed fires at the sandhills tract have produced a dynamic shift in the natural communities and an increase in floristic diversity, writes DNR’s Shan Cammack.
