Loess Hills Cooperative Burn Week


  • Loess Hills

Organized and led by the Loess Hills Fire Partners, this event will be focused on the central Loess Hills region of western Iowa, including the Loess Hills State Forest. Burn units on private, state and county ownerships are being planned and are designed to improve tallgrass prairie habitat by reducing encroaching brush and eastern redcedar. This event will focus on building local fire capacity through strengthening regional partnerships with state, federal, non-profit, VFD and private landowner partners, but additional participation from other regions will be sought to provide new perspectives and insights to the Loess Hills. Lodging and some meals will be provided. (Rain dates are March 27-31.)
