Prescribed burning in state parks (04/08/2009)
Over the next few weeks, Minnesota DNR staff will be completing a series of controlled burns at Great River Bluffs State Park, (located at Highway 61 and Interstate 90 near Dakota) and John Latsch State Park (along Highway 61 near Bass Camp). Burning is used as a tool to control invasive plant species such as Buckthorn, Honeysuckle, and Japanese barberry.

At Great River Bluffs, King and Queens Bluffs, along with Hill of Many Timbers, are prominent points scheduled to be burned. At Latsch, Faith Bluff is scheduled to be burned.

The Winona County Sheriff Department will be notified by park staff before each burn. Burns will generally take place Monday through Friday between the hours of 10am and 4pm as weather conditions allow. Personnel will stay on scene until the burn is complete, although smoke and smoldering can occur for sometime afterwards. Any smoldering material will be clearly within a safety zone and monitored.

For more information, call 507-643-6849.
