Burn of our Prarie
Dear Association Members,
As was discussed at our recent Annual Meeting, the Board has contracted with Jon Kellerman, Natural Resources Instructor at Fox Valley Technical College, to carry out a burn of our prairie and wetlands areas. The burn will help control weeds and other invasive plants and rejuvenate the native grasses and flowers. Based on weather conditions and scheduling, the burn ideally will take place yet this fall, with a backup of Spring 2018.
FVTC will contact the fire department and county sheriff prior to the burn. They will try to provide a 24-hour advance notice; however, because the burn is weather dependent, we may not receive much advance notice. Typically, Jon has about eight students assist him with the burn.
I will keep you posted and provide additional information as I receive it. If you have any questions, please let me know.
