Parks Canada using prescribed fire to protect a magical place

MALLORYTOWN, ON, July 21, 2014 /CNW/ - Thousand Islands National Park presents an enchanting landscape in the heart of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve that is a few hours drive from the homes of over 11 million Canadians. It is a place where majestic castles and summer homes stand in contrast to rugged islands of granite and pine that are home to lumbering turtles, soaring eagles, and countless other species.
Parks Canada is going to set fire to a portion of one of the Thousand Islands most magical islands - Camelot Island - in order to help protect rare fire-dependent species for future generations.
Years of fire suppression has upset the balance of natural and essential processes needed to support healthy mixed forests in the Thousand Islands. Parks Canada is a world leader in the use of fire as a method of restoring a natural process to the landscape, supporting ecosystem biodiversity and health.
Join us as we offer media a rare and very close up opportunity to see Parks Canada's fire crews implement specific and carefully planned actions that use fire to restore the landscape.
