In order to maintain and enhance this fire-dependent tallgrass prairie ecosystem, a Low Complexity Prescribed Burn is planned at Hillman Marsh Conservation Area within the next few weeks.

Approximately 5 hectares (12 acres) of tallgrass prairie grassland will be burned by ERCA’s certified, professional staff.

“As with all professional prescribed burns in Ontario, safety will be the top priority in this project in order to protect both human and property values,” says Kevin Money, ERCA’s Director of Conservation Services. “Due to the low complexity nature of this burn, our primary concern will be to minimize any inconvenience that may occur due to smoke.”

Adjacent landowners will be directly notified once the burn date is confirmed.
