Prescribed Burns to Occur This Spring

The Woodridge Park District will be conducting prescribed burns in several parks and properties this spring. The burns will take place between now and 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 so that we may properly plan to avoid any problems.
