Adel - Rangers at Reed Bingham State Park are taking extra precautions to protect the habitat and species at the park.

Prescribed burning started Tuesday on 135 acres at the park.

They say the burning will not only protect the park from wildfires but will help the growth of the ecosystem and comeback of endangered species.

"The fire today is really going to help the gopher tortoise and indigo snake. We are trying to hit the uplands and bring in more wiregrass, grasses, and open up the forest on the drier pine ridges," says Sham Cammack with the Department of Natural Resources.

Rangers say anyone living or driving nearby may experience heavy smoke as they continue burning land throughout the week.
