The reintroduction of fire to our native ecosystems is an essential part of returning the land to a healthy state. Prairies, savannas and woodlands of this region are all adapted to fire and in fact depend on it to maintain species diversity which in turn creates more beneficial habitat for wildlife. Midwest Prairies conducts dozens of prescribed burns every year. We use trained staff and equipment specially designed for this work. Our services always include the development of a burn plan and procurement of permits. Upon request we can also notify neighbors and/or conduct seminars to explain the process. In most cases, we welcome the use of trained volunteers working under our supervision.
