It is prescribed burn season and the Decatur Park District staff will be conducting prescribed burns in the month of March at Red Tail Run Golf Club.
Fire is a natural process that shaped the Illinois landscape. Prescribed burning is an efficient and effective tool used to manage prairie and woodland habitat and maintain a healthy diversity of plants and animals.
Safety is our highest priority. Our key goal is to keep smoke from blowing toward homes, roadways and other smoke-sensitive areas. Local police and fire officials are notified when and where burns will take place, so they can respond to people who report that they are seeing smoke from an area.
