Prescribed burns are planned in the Ojibway Prairie Complex, specifically in areas around Tallgrass Prairie Heritage Park and Black Oak Heritage Park over the next few weeks.

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

Continued burning is necessary to maintain a healthy and diverse ecosystem in the Ojibway Prairie area. Prescribed burns have been safely used as an effective management tool for Windsor’s Tallgrass Prairie and Oak Savannah ecosystems for 40 years.
