The Decorah Parks & Recreation Department has announced that prescribed prairie burns will take place on parts of the City Prairie any time starting Wednesday through the end of April.
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.
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, call the Park and Rec. office at 382-4158 and leave your phone number.
