Fire in the Pines Virtual Festival 2020

2020 presented many challenges, but it was an opportunity for Fire in the Pines Festival to go virtual.  A virtual festival cannot compare to an in-person festival, however we can still give you the same knowledge about controlled burns and longleaf pine ecosystems!  We hope our virtual festival is engaging, informative and inspires you to explore our natural areas.  Field professionals in longleaf join us via FB Lives for interactive chats and in our mini series to tell you more about longleaf & fire.  Click below to explore the different components of our virtual festival.
