Prescribed prairie burns will take place between April 12th and April 28th on parts of the City Prairie as well as Van Peenen Park.

The 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.

Weather conditions are the major determination as to when the burns will take place. If you would like a notification of the exact day and time of the burns, please call the Park and Rec. office at 382-4158 and leave your phone number. A staff member will call you when the exact date and time are determined.
