Prescribed fire is a useful management tool and provides numerous benefits to our ecosystem.
To spread awareness about the benefits of prescribed fire, Texas A&M Forest Service created a trackable geocoin in 2015 and began placing 100 of these coins in geocaches across the state.
Since their release in 2015 the coins have:
- Visited 37 states
- Been found in 5 countries
- Traveled more than 100,000 miles
