Post-fire Ecology: Ranger Walk + Talk


Frontenac State Park


Sat, Apr 27    
10:00 am - 12:00 pm



We regularly use prescribed fire at the park to keep our prairies and forests healthy, as fire is crucial in maintaining our ecosystem’s stability and diversity. Have you ever wanted to know why this is the case? Have you ever wondered what makes a prescribed fire different from a wildfire? Come get these and any other burning questions you may have answered at Frontenac State Park on the April Free Park Day!

Join a park ranger on a guided hike around the prairie loop to learn about fire’s role in resource management at Frontenac State Park. We will be hiking in an area of the park where prescribed fire has been recently used to see first-hand how it changes these landscapes. The hike will last about an hour and a half and include uneven terrain. It is recommended to bring water, sunscreen, and bug spray, if preferred. Sturdy and comfortable shoe wear is also recommended. Meet at the Ranger Station.

Severe weather or other factors may cause this event to be changed or canceled. For updates, or if you have questions, call Frontenac State Park at 651-299-3000.
