Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/03/2021

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources announced that fire management crews plan to conduct prescribed burns on DNR properties throughout the state through mid-June. The agency says the purposes of the burns is to take advantage of the state's optimal conditions during the spring.

Prescribed burning is done to preserve and restore fire-dependent ecosystems found within state-managed properties throughout Wisconsin.

DNR staff spend months comprehensively planning each prescribed burn and begin pre-season preparations and refresher training in January.

In 2021, all burns conducted on DNR land will follow additional COVID-19 operational protocols to further minimize health and safety risks to burn crews and the general public.
