Free with regular park admission

This is an outdoor festival aimed to increase awareness and understanding of prescribed fire – the How’s and Why’s we do it. There are numerous hands-on stations where you can learn about prescribed fire, the tools and equipment that are used, and about fire-dependent ecosystems in Florida. Increase your understanding of why prescribed fire is important and how it helps not only the native plants and animals, but how it can help reduce the intensity and potential danger of wildfires. Enjoy numerous hands-on activities that are fun for the whole family, including scavenger hunts, hayrides, and equipment demos.
