The Salem Ranger District of the Mark Twain National Forest is seeking you comments on a proposal for the Scotia Cemetery Prescribed Burn Project. This project is located on about 285 acres of National Forest System lands and consists of a 24-acre burn. The primary purpose is to improve the conditions of under story vegetation and to provide increased protection for heritage resources in a portion of the Nova Scotia Ironworks, an area of special historical significance that was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Salem Ranger District is proposing prescribed burn treatments to reduce encroaching vegetation which currently obstructs archaeological resources present, to improve the quality of vegetation, and to reduce hazardous fuels. All fuels will be removed from grave markers, monuments, or any other elements that could be damaged from the fire. Comments should be specific to the project. Written or oral comments may be submitted via mail, telephone or in person. Include you name, address, title of the project, your comments and your signature.
