Prescribed fires scheduled for Mahoney State Park through May

LINCOLN, Neb. – Prescribed fires will be conducted at Eugene T. Mahoney State Park in Cass County from March 15 through the end of May, as conditions allow.

These fires are part of an ongoing oak woodland restoration project and will help control the spread of invasive plants. Exact dates of the burns, to be conducted by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, will depend on the weather.

Affected trails and roads in portions of the park will be marked with signs and closed during the fires.
