Prescribed prairie burns will take place on parts of the City Prairie between April 15 and May 10, the Decorah Parks and Recreation Office has announced.
“Prescribed burns are an effective resource management tool utilized to discourage the growth of weeds and woody vegetation while promoting the growth of desired native vegetation in prairie restoration sites,” a department spokesperson said.
Weather conditions are the major determination as to when the burns will take place. Anyone who would like a notification of the exact day and time of the burns is asked to call the Parks and Rec. office at 382-4158 and leave a phone number. Someone from that office will try to notify callers when the exact date and time are determined.
