Many different plants and animals live together in healthy ecosystems. At Pumpkin Hill Creek Preserve State Park, rangers are working to restore the health of longleaf pine forest ecosystems within the preserve. Learn techniques to transform a planted pine plantation back into a native sandhill or pine flatwood community including vegetation surveys, tree thinning, prescribed fire and seedling planting. Hands-on activities will include plant identification along a guided nature hike, wetland faunal sampling and a fire engine demonstration.
