Controlled Prairie Burn Set for Friday

Restoration work will take place in a 12-acre portion of the Prairie Corridor on Haines Branch near Denton, Friday, September 6 from 10 a.m. to noon. This controlled burn near West 3rd and Southwest 98th streets is being performed in preparation for a native planting later this month. Controlled burns are a tool to manage large areas of native plants and grasses. Land managers monitor weather and air quality conditions to ensure safe burns.

For more information on the prairie and ongoing management efforts, call 402-441-7847 or email parks@lincoln.ne.gov. More information on Parks and Recreation is available at parks.lincoln.ne.gov.
