Apr 12, 2012: And Still More Prairie Fire

Planned prairie burn at southwest park entrance, 4/12/12 (Kevin Kane)

Much of the southwest section of the park  was burned this morning giving rise to huge clouds of smoke that carried off to the northwest. Ames parks & recreation personnel were on the scene to light and control the fire as it slowly made its way across the hills and wetland areas in the southwest part of the park.  Many areas of the park have not been burned for a few years and won't be burned again for a few more.
