Prescribed Burn of easement prairie and other land restoration efforts


DSC_0991LCWC Board members, staff and volunteers conduct a prescribed burn in April, 2013 at our conservation easement, Palomino Trace, in Green Garden Township, Will County.

This slice of permanently protected land along Forked Creek was seeded three years ago, and this past spring provided our first chance to burn the maturing prairie.

Managing a prairie is surprisingly fun…

AND it take a lot of work.

From burns to brush removal to seeding to herbiciding, the Land Conservancy of Will County is working on it all, and welcomes your volunteer help.  Please email or call us if you are interested in donating your time and effort.
