Controlled Burn on Trail May 14, 2021

Please be advised that controlled burns will be held along the Paint Creek Trail today.
The purpose of the burns is to stimulate the prairie and oak savanna plant communities along the trail while discouraging invasive plants such as buckthorn, autumn olive, and multiflora rose.
 
The burn will begin around 10:30 or 11 am at the first burn unit between Silverbell Rd and Dutton Rd, and will move to the Paint Creek Heritage Area – Wet Prairie just north of Silverbell Rd when that burn is complete.
 
Please use caution if you are planning on visiting these areas.
