Prescribed burn planned for Solon Prairie

SOLON– The Johnson County Conservation (JCC) Department will conduct a prescribed burn at the Solon Prairie, at some point, between March and April, weather conditions permitting.
Prescribed fire is an effective tool in reducing built up plant material, reducing woody invasive species and stimulating plant growth. Prescribed fires are conducted under precise guidelines and all conservation board personnel have received extensive training and certification in fire management. If proper weather conditions do not occur during the March and April timeframe, it is unlikely a prescribed burn will occur at the Solon Prairie for the spring of 2018.
For more information regarding the prescribed burn contact Natural Resource Manager Dave Wehde at the JCC headquarters at 319-645-2315 or email dwehde@co.johnson.ia.us.
