Fire in Uplands Park – August 23, 2012.

Chris Hyde-Lay, Manager of Park Services, Oak Bay, has advised the Friends of Uplands Park of a fire, in the central rocky area of Uplands Park, that took place around 10pm on August 23, 2012. Chris noted: “It was about 75 m square. A little bark scorching to some of the small Garry Oaks.” I took photos of the burn on August 28, 2012. (Perhaps too many photos.) The burn extended to an area where FOUP had done a lot of broom removal in October 2011. This is the same area where there was another fire many years ago (2003?). I have photos of that burn as well, somewhere, and the same little Oak trees were scorched in that previous fire. Slideshow seems to present the images in a random order so hard to follow the actual spatial relationship of the photos.
