  • GEOCACHING: PRESCRIBED FIRE GEOCOINS

    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.
