Controlled burn sets stage for U.S. 301 pollinator site

Department of Agriculture | Department of Transportation | Division of Fish and Wildlife | Forest Service | News | Date Posted: Thursday, March 21, 2019

A controlled burn on a 43-acre former farm field along U.S. Route 301 will provide fertile ground for “Delaware’s first pollinator mitigation site” – where state officials hope native wildflowers will flourish to restore lost habitat for pollinators such as bees and birds.

The Delaware Forest Service  conducted the successful firing operation on March 20 in cooperation DelDOT and DNREC’s Division of Fish and Wildlife, which supplied valuable personnel, logistical support, and equipment. Thanks to favorable weather conditions and DelDOT lane adjustments on U.S. 301 North, the four-hour burn caused minimal disruptions to traffic and virtually no smoke effects on the adjacent Spring Mill housing development.
