During the week of November 27th to December 1, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore completed 4 prescribed fires for approximately 899 acres of fire. During the same time frame, NPS Fire units responded to and extinguished a 37 acre wildfire in the Tolleston Dunes portion of the National Lakeshore.

There is one more prescribed fire that could still be accomplished, weather permitting. The Woodlake Dune Savanah Prescribed Fire is a 62 acre burn unit that requires very specific conditions to burn due to local manufacturing concerns.
