Stop 1: Welcome to the current river pinery

This podcast accompanies Part 1 of a self-guided tour of the Current River Pinery in Missouri’s Mark Twain National Forest. The four-part tour describes the pinery’s history, ecology, and the social benefits of fire-adapted shortleaf pine-oak woodlands.

In this Part 1 podcast, join a U.S. Forest Service burn boss during a prescribed fire, then learn from a historian about the open woodlands of the past.
