Fishers Island Burn

On behalf of the Fishers Island Conservancy, I would like to extend our deepest thanks and gratitude to Fire Chief Bruce Hubert and the entire Fishers Island Fire Department for their leadership in conducting the grassland burns this year at the Parade Grounds, Elizabeth Field and Race Point. These spring burns are critical to the work the Conservancy has done and continues to do in habitat restoration, maintenance and management at these sites. The grasslands are a very precious resource for all of us to enjoy so please come out and walk the paths as spring pushes out new green shoots and perhaps you will be lucky and catch a glimpse of our resident Northern Harriers hunting as I did on Friday.

Again the Conservancy appreciates the planning, organization and hard work of the Fishers Island Fire Department more than words here can express.

Thomas A. Sargent
President, Fishers Island Conservancy
