Meet Burner Bob®
Burner Bob® is a bobwhite quail who lives in the longleaf forest with other animal friends such as gopher tortoises and red-cockaded woodpeckers. He devotes his life to explaining to people that the longleaf forest with its many plants and animals has evolved over time to being burned on a regular basis. The forests need fire to survive and thrive. He goes about the land telling the story and showing people how to control burn safely.
Burner Bob® and The Longleaf Alliance support regular prescribed burns to create healthy habitats for the plants and animals that call the longleaf ecosystem home.
Would you like to meet Bob in person? Please contact Carol Denhof if you would like to have Burner Bob® at your next fire or longleaf related event.
