Prairie Burn

I participated today in a Prairie Burn.  Burning maintains and improves the warm season grasses.  The weather was beautiful for the work, but we were in kind of a sheltered area and combined with plenty of soil moisture and not too much fuel, some areas did not burn as well as we would have liked.  Grass roots will survive and hold the soil in place until it greens up in the spring.  Fall and winter burns tend to help the wildflowers as well.
