Fire is one of the most important natural agents of change. Recognizing its vital role in ecosystem health, land managers prescribe burning as a management tool. Trish Burns, the manager of Peck Farm Park in the Geneva Park District, will lead this class on prescribed burns. We’ll discuss the fire-adapted natural communities in our area and the dynamic element of fire as a management tool. The program will start in the classroom, and then continue outdoors to observe natural areas that were burned last spring. Advance registration is required. Call 630-444-3190 or email to register.

Fee: $10/person
