The grasslands are currently under extremely dry conditions on the Eastern Plains. Please be aware where you’re parking! Tall grass and a hot muffler can start a fire under these conditions so park on the dirt roads whenever possible.
Prescribed burns are one thing, respect the fire danger and don’t start a wild fire!
Every so often, it appears as though Annuals bloom like wildfire and –BOOM– the prairie turns into fields of flowers.
This happens to be one of those years.
Plains Greenthread (Thelesperma filifolium) has blanketed the C.P.E.R., what a beautiful site to see.

What a beautiful day for a burn. Mark, our Site Manager, lending a hand!
Can’t wait for the next one!
