Prescribed Burn at Mackay Gardens

Yesterday, March 1, 2021, the City of Lake Alfred conducted a successful joint training exercise with the Florida Forrest Service, Auburndale Fire Department, and Polk County Fire. In all, 23 acres were burned and will benefit the habitat within the Mackay Preserve for years. Trails on the east side of the preserve will be closed for a few days. However, the gardens and trails on the west side of the preserve remain open.
