Prescribed Burns

Eva Rey, President

Central Viera Community Association

Each year around this time, several different agencies throughout our area and around the state perform their annual prescribed burns. For those of us who have been here a while, we may recognize the big wall of smoke on our western border that may be a bit disconcerting at times, but, is necessary for the healthy and beneficial management of our native vegetative habitat and scrub areas. We are currently in the process of performing a couple of larger burns within the Viera Wilderness Park (the conservation land on our western border), so I am sure some of you have seen the smoke from these fires.

Prescribed fires are conducted in order to comply with the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRMWD) Environmental Resource Permit (ERP), the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) Individual Permit (IP), the Viera Wilderness Park Habitat Management Plan (HMP), and the Viera Development of Regional Impact (DRI). The Habitat Management Plan requires about 1,000 acres of conservation land to be managed each year through prescribed burns. And, this is the time of year when it is generally conducted as it is not the rainy season and the weather is more agreeable to this activity.

Day Light Saving -

How did we get here?

It’s that time of year again, where we all lose an hour of sleep and give our opinion on what time we prefer the sun to rise. That’s right, this Sunday, March 10th is the start of Daylight Saving Time (DST). This period lasts from March 10th – November 3rd, where we will revert back to the Standard Time (ST). During DST, people will have a later sunrise and sunset, making our days longer (in terms of daylight).
