Spring is in the air! In the tallgrass prairie, one of the signs of the season is smoke rising from a prescribed burn. Just a few days after the fire, the prairie bursts into life with fresh green shoots. Come out to the Prairie Heritage Center on Wednesday, April 15 at 7:00 p.m. to learn more about this important management tool.
“Flames and Flowers” will highlight the importance of prairie fire as a way to maintain a healthy ecosystem. Participants will also learn about some of the first wildflowers of spring. This program will last approximately one hour and may include walking outdoors. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes and dress for the weather.
