Prescribed prairie burns will take place on parts of the Decorah Community Prairie. The burns will take place between April 12 and May 14. Weather conditions are the major determination as to when the burns will take place. If you would like a notification of the exact day and time of the burns, please call the Park and Rec. office at 382-4158 and leave your phone number. We will try to notify you when the exact date and time are determined.
Prescribed burns are an effective resource management tool utilized to discourage the growth of weeds and woody vegetation while promoting the growth of desired native vegetation in prairie restoration sites.
