Park district conducts prairie burns


Mike Ullery | Daily Call Miami County Park District officials burn a section of prairie at the Stillwater Reserve on Monday morning. The controlled burn is part of the annual park maintenance program that helps keep the park prairie areas healthy. This year’s burn period began several weeks early, thanks to favorable February weather. Park district officials hope that this works in their favor as they have an “ambitious” schedule in which they hope to complete eight or nine prairie burns before spring arrives.
