Exhibits

The Fire in the Pines Festival features over 30 activity booths and educational exhibits for children and adults, plus fire engines, a helicopter, and food trucks!

Fire in the Pines burning

Controlled Burns

Without prescribed burning the longleaf pines across the region would disappear. So, too, would the red-cockaded woodpeckers, venues flytraps and a host of other carnivorous and rare plants that need fire to thrive and survive.
