Visible smoke from prescribed burns

Residents, especially those in the south west of Canberra, may notice a smoke haze around the local region for a number of days. Prescribed burns managed by ACT Parks and Conservation are taking place in Namadgi National Park, Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, Point Hut Hill Reserve and Bonshaw Grasslands. Operations at Namadgi National Park are expected to last between 4-6 days with smoke expected to linger for up to several weeks once the burn is complete.
