WHY BURN?
Prescribed burning is a very important management tool for maintaining and enhancing grasslands. Fire was an important natural part in the development and maintenance of grasslands, forests, and wetlands, throughout history. To many of us, fire is a feared enemy that destroys everything in its path. Because of this, the use of controlled fires, such as prescribed burning, is underutilized as a management tool for improving and maintaining habitats. The Menard County SWCD had burn equipment available free for use, in the office donated by the New Salem Longbeard Wildlife Turkey Federation. Contact us at 632-7590 ext 3.
