Prescribed burning season in NJ: February 27th and 28th

I wrote about the start of the spring prescribed burning season in New Jersey  last Wednesday, February 24th. I understand from the NJ Forest Fire Service's February 21st press release that prescribed burns were planned for February 22nd in Burlington. Ocean and Cumberland counties.

The New Jersey Forests Facebook page lists the prescribed burns that were planned for this past weekend, February 27th and 28th (go here to see article):
Hammonton Wildlife Management Area in Mullica Township; Maple Lake Wildlife Management Area in Estell Manor City; Stockton College in Galloway Township; Strawberry Field in Hamilton Township;  Tuckahoe Wildlife Management Area in Estell Manor City

CAPE MAY COUNTY Belleplain State Forest in Upper Township; and Cox Hall Creek Wildlife Management Area in Lower Township
CUMBERLAND COUNTY Buckshutem Wildlife Management Area in Fairfield Township; Millville Wildlife Management Area in Commercial Township; and Peaslee Wildlife Management Area in Maurice River Township

OCEAN COUNTY Colliers Mills Wildlife Management Area in Jackson Township; Greenwood Wildlife Management Area in Barnegat and Lacey Townships; Warren Grove Gunnery Range in Stafford Township; and  Whiting Wildlife Management Area in Manchester Township (obtained on February 29, 2016 from NJ Forests Facebook page  
My friends at the B10 NJ Wildland Fire Page continue to cover the prescribed burns, today I found a couple of photos from recent prescribed burns on their home page about on-third of the way down the page (this page updates frequently); you will also want to check out their 2016 prescribed burn photo page.

I found one article reporting on two of the prescribed burns done this past weekend: Philly dot com on prescribed burns done near Stockton University
