Springfield Township and its private land partners will be conducting prescribed burns this year at several locations within the Township. These prescribed burns are being implemented by trained and experienced personnel to assist with the restoration of wildlife habitat and decrease the presence of invasive plant species. Maps showing burn locations are below. 

Safety is the #1 priority when implementing these burns. Visitors hiking the park trails or hunting in the preserve on burn days may encounter temporary closures of trails that lead into burn locations, as well as a total closure of the actual burn unit until completion. Maps of burn units within Township parks will be posted at parking lots or trailheads. Where appropriate, signage will be set up along area roadways.
