A controlled burn at Crown Point Bio Basins is scheduled for Friday, March 30, beginning at 1:30 p.m. The basins are located in the parking lot at Terra Park. Park users should avoid this area of the parking lot.
Should weather conditions change, the burn will be cancelled. The controlled burn should only last an hour and will be fully contained with concrete.
Seasonal burning of native vegetation in Iowa promotes species diversity, habitat and suppression of invasive species. Controlled burning is an established and powerful conservation management tool that, when utilized by professionals under strictly defined parameters, can be safely used for great benefit to natural areas.
Questions regarding this controlled burn can be directed to Parks Crew Leader, Kari Allen at 515-727-8091
