DNR - Prescribed Burns Protect EnvironmentSun, 28 Mar 2021 06:02:17 EDT
The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) says prescribed burns on Michigan grasslands and at the edges of forests will again be conducted this spring and summer to improve wildlife habitat and get rid of invasive plant species that can crowd out native plants.
They also reduce the amount of debris on the ground that could provide fuel for large wildfires.
DNR firefighters conducted prescribed burns on more than 8,800 acres in 2019.
