Mon, 08/31/2020 - 04:40pm - The morning’s air felt thick. It wasn’t ideal. As the students gathered into the wood-paneled classroom at the Joseph W. Jones Ecological Research Center at Ichauway, Mark Melvin bit his lip. The plans that day called for their first hands-on prescribed burn, at a pie-shaped piece of land near Ichauway’s skeet range.
