Firewood alert: voluntary firewood restriction

We know that a campfire is an important part of your recreation experience at Nebraska state parks and recreation areas. However, whenever firewood is transported any distance, it can harbor the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) or other invasive pests that are harmful to Nebraska woodlands and landscapes. Please help prevent the spread of invasive pests by acquiring firewood within 50 miles of your destination and burning all of it rather than transporting to another location. - Thank you!
