Controlled Burn Scheduled For Briarwood Nature Area Thu, March 10 And Fri, March 11

The City and its contractor Cardno Inc are expected to perform a controlled burn at Briarwood Nature Area Thu, March 10 and Fri, March 11. The area will then be restored with native grasses and wildflowers later this spring 2022.

As part of the project the contractor will remove the invasive species, create brush piles, and perform a controlled burn on site. A controlled burn is an important management tool that replicates the natural and beneficial process of fire, promoting the growth of native plants and controlling weeds. Burns are only conducted by trained crews after obtaining the proper permits and notifying the Fire Department and 911 dispatchers.

Burns must be conducted with proper wind conditions to minimize the amount of smoke that may blow across roadways or towards buildings. During the operation, you may see and smell smoke. Therefore, it is recommended that you keep your windows and doors closed during the controlled burn if possible. Because the burns are wind and weather dependent, the decision to complete a burn is often made 24 to 48 hours prior. On the day of each burn, Cardno Inc will go door to door to notify property owners immediately adjacent to the burn area.

Call 763-593-8044 or e-mail dchirpich@goldenvalleymn.gov for questions.
