Prescribed Burns to Continue This Spring

February 1, 2017 – The Woodridge Park District conducted prescribed burns in several parks and properties in fall 2016 and will continue this spring. The burns will take place through April 30, when weather conditions are suitable.

Prescribed burns are part of a natural areas management process and will be conducted by trained Park District staff or a contractor. All burns are supervised by an Illinois Certified Prescribed Burn Manager. Prescribed burns are a management technique used for improving site conditions for high quality native plants while reducing invasive weeds.

During the prescribed burn, smoke conditions will occur, but shall be kept to a minimum. Should any of your family members have health situations that may be affected or irritated by these conditions, please contact us at (630) 353-3300 so that we may properly plan to avoid any problems.
