Where there's smoke, there's prairie fire

Tag icon ,

Prescribed burns on the Keith White Prairie are likely later this week. After surveying the prairie Monday morning with Gary Fewless, project coordinator Joshua Martinez says conditions look good for the sort of controlled, periodic burn necessary in nature to rejuvenate a prairie and keep it in top condition. So, don’t be alarmed if you see a little smoke – you’ll also see a team of Arboretum professionals keeping a close eye on things. The best guess now is that things will start heating up around noon this Thursday (April 26).
