Stories: Controlled Burn Planned in Scotia Forest

April 24, 2009

The Pennsylvania Game Commission is planning to conduct a proscribed burn in Centre County's Scotia Barrens. The Scotia Barrens is a unique forestland just north of State College. The burn is supposed to improve habitat conditions for the plants and animals in the forest. WPSU's Emily Reddy talked with Penn State professor of wildlife resources, Gary San Julian in the section of the Scotia Barrens where the burn will occur.
