In fact most of the area is under a burn ban. Some CRP burning has been allowed under certain conditions. For future, we hope wetter, years we need to remember that research and experience have shown that fire can be used as a major management practice for native and introduced grass- lands, hay meadows, and estab- lishing and managing new native grass stands. Fire can recycle nutrients tied up in old plant growth, stimulate tillering and control many woody and herba- ceous plants in an economical manner. Controlled burning can im- prove grazing distribution, in- creased livestock production, reduce wildfire hazards and im- prove wildlife habitat. Proper timing is important and some grazing deferment Last Call For Art Show Artwork is still being ac- cepted for the art show at the Proteciton Library this Saturday, April 22.
