The Nature Conservancy has asked us to announce that it will conduct a controlled burn in the Ossipee Pine Barrens Preserve on Monday, October 3. The burn will be in the Zito Unit, which consists of 37 acres adjacent to Windsock Village.

I have witnessed several burns in the Pine Barrens area of Freedom over the years and while it causes some concerns, it is instrumental in preventing major fires in our region.
