Barnhart Prairie Nature Preserve

2005 Praire Burn

Saturday, March 19, 2005

It was a windy morning, but with a light rain the night before, board members Donald and Brett Barnhart decided it was a go for the prairie burn. With the help of about a dozen volunteers, approx 20 acres were burned on the north end of the prairie. This represents approx 1/3 of the planted praire.
The westerly wind was a huge help in the burn, which is one of the best the author had ever seen. "There really were no incendents at all. Once we got the fire going and burned the fire breaks, we lit the west side and let her go."
Pictures will be posted later from the burn.
