Controlled burns are planned at two Richmond battlefields this month to preserve the landscape as it appeared during the Civil War.
If weather conditions are favorable, the Richmond Times-Dispatch says Richmond National Battlefield Park will conduct a controlled burn at the Malvern Hill battlefield on Thursday. Another burn at the Cold Harbor battlefield is planned next week.
The park trail and parsonage parking lot at Malvern Hill will be closed during the burn. Cold Harbor's park tour road and extended trail will be closed.
