Prescribed Burns

Prescribed burning helps “clean up” an area by eliminating the past year’s materials. Less material build up allows the soils to warm more quickly in the spring resulting in quicker germination of native species and easier regrowth. Burning is recommended on a 3-5 year cycle for any native ecosystem. BWNR facilitates over 100 prescribed burns annually.
