The Texas Mid-coast Fire crew will possibly be conducting a prescribed fire on Brazoria NWR on January 7, 2017. The prescribe fire will start around 8:00 am and go to just before dark. The prescribed fire is south of FM 2004 and east of County Road 227 north of Intracoastal Waterway and west of Chocolate Bayou. The prescribed fire will treat 7,696 acres of marsh. The prescribed burn will rejuvenate the marsh grasses, reduce the risk of wildfires and decrease the invasive species that are encroaching on the marshes. If the prescribed fire is cancelled you will be notified.
