Milton Hershey School Collaborates with DCNR to Perform Prescribed Burns on Campus

On Friday, April 14, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) Bureau of Forestry visited Milton Hershey School’s campus to perform prescribed burns on several of the school’s meadows.

“[Prescribed burns] are a safe and effective meadow management tool as we seek to be good stewards of our natural resources at Milton Hershey School,” said Nate McKelvie, an instructional advisor at the MHS Environmental Center.

The DCNR Bureau of Forestry visited Milton Hershey School’s campus to perform prescribed burns on several of the school’s meadows.

Controlled burns help rejuvenate meadow vegetation, creating a healthier and more diverse ecosystem for wildlife and plant life. The controlled burns at MHS were conducted by DCNR’s professional wildland fire crew in conjunction with the Safety and Security and Agricultural and Environmental Education (AEE) staff at MHS. The crew followed a prescribed burn plan that was designed and approved by DCNR and MHS.

Milton Hershey School’s AEE Department educates students and staff about protecting the environment and provides exposure to environmental and agricultural concepts through experiential learning opportunities. Learn more about our commitment to the environment.
