This Friday, Jan. 15th the Florida Division of Forestry will be conducting a live-fire training exercise at Balm-Boyette Scrub Nature Preserve, weather permitting.
The area planned for the burn is a small section of the preserve, just north of the "Red Shirt" section of the "Northeast" trail. The "Southeast, Northwest & Southwest" trails should also be avoided, due to heavy equipment and brush truck activity in the area. This exercise will involve trainees from many different localities and agencies.
It should not affect the Firday Night Ride, but the weather might! We'll keep an eye on the radar and decide Thursday if the night ride is still a go.
