Weather and site conditions permitting, this afternoon we may conduct a prescribed burn in Middleton Hills and/or at the Pheasant Branch Conservancy Overlook prairie.
The objective of the burn is to promote prairie, savanna and oak woodland vegetation and prepare these areas for overseeding.
The burns will likely start between 1130-1PM and be completed by 5pm. Warning signs will be posted on nearby roads and trails, and Middleton dispatch will be contacted prior to and after the burn.
Conservancy visitors may encounter temporary trail closures as the burns are conducted.
