Prescribed burn planned for Solon Prairie
SOLON– The Johnson County Conservation Board (JCCB) is planning to conduct a prescribed burn at the Solon Prairie at some point between March and April, 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 the March and April timeframe, it is unlikely that a prescribed burn will occur at the Solon Prairie for the spring of 2014.
For more information regarding this prescribed burn please contact Natural Resource Manager, Dave Wehde at the JCCB Headquarters at 319-645-2315 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org
