Learn more about the Department of Veterans Affairs #MissionAct that takes effect on June 6th.

Beginning June 6, 2019, under the MISSION Act, you’ll have more ways to access health care. This includes within VA’s network and through approved non-VA medical providers in your community, called “community care providers.”

Depending on your situation—for example, if a certain type of health service isn’t provided by VA—you may be able to go to a non-VA provider, using your VA coverage.

PRESCRIBED BURN NOTICE: @thetrustees, in partnership with the @NorthAndoverFD and @MassDCR, will be conducting a prescribed burn at Weir Hill on June 4, 2019 (weather depending).


The Trustees of Reservations, in partnership with the North Andover Fire Department and Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, will be conducting a prescribed burn at Weir Hill on June 4, 2019 (weather depending).

A prescribed burn is the controlled application of fire to the land to accomplish specific conservation and land management goals. Weir Hill’s south slope has burned regularly for centuries, and the properties woodlands and shrublands contain many rare species of plants and animals adapted to and dependent upon frequent fire. In applying prescribed fire, this partnership will reduce fuel loads and the risk of wildfire, provide training for firefighters, and perpetuate these rare natural communities. Prescribed fire is a natural, effective means for managing these habitats, and has been used successfully in Massachusetts since 1985.

This work will be conducted under the leadership of a certified prescribed fire leader utilizing a professionally trained burn crew to ensure the safety and protection of surrounding resources. Weir Hill will be closed to the public on the day of burn activities. All necessary permits have been obtained from the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection.
