SOLON– The Johnson County Conservation Board (JCCB) is planning to conduct a prescribed burn at the Solon Prairie at some point between March 5 and April 30, 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 this timeframe, it is unlikely that a prescribed burn will occur at the Solon Prairie for the spring of 2012.
For more information regarding this prescribed burn please contact Director Harry Graves at the JCCB Headquarters at 319-645-2315 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org .
