The City of Windsor says that residents and drivers on Windsor’s West side can expect to see some smoke this week as prescribed burns are expected to be undertaken in the Ojibway Prairie Complex, specifically in areas around Chappus Street, Ojibway Park, Spring Garden Natural Area and Black Oak Heritage Park.

The areas will be closed during the burns, and it’s recommended nearby neighbours keep windows shut when smoke is in the air.

Prescribed burns have been safely used as an effective management tool for Windsor’s Tallgrass Prairie and Oak Savanna ecosystems for 30 years.
