Leaders in Conservation: Prescribed Burns within the Rice Lake Plains

Wednesday, June 1
1:30 p.m. EDT

A prescribed burn is a carefully controlled fire deliberately set to a fixed area, only under strict environmental conditions, to accomplish a desired outcome.

The prescribed burns conducted on NCC’s properties are designed to mimic natural fires that once burned through prairie and savanna ecosystems. By burning these fire-adapted ecosystems, the desired outcome is to increase the number of native species while reducing the growth of non-native and/or invasive species as well as undesirable woody vegetation.

Join us virtually to learn more how prescribed burns are being used to restore tall grass habitats within the Rice Lake Plains.

To RSVP for this virtual event, please email OntarioLIC@natureconservancy.ca or call 1-877-231-3552 ext. 5228

The webinar link will be sent one week prior to the event. This event was created exclusively for our Leaders in Conservation donors in Ontario, a group of dedicated supporters who generously donate $1,000 or more annually to NCC.
