Controlled Burn to Close CR Trail
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - The City of Cedar Rapids will conduct a controlled burn along the Sac and Fox Greenway on Tuesday between 8:30 AM and 3:00 PM.
The Sac and Fox Trail will be closed from the parking lot by the Prairie Park Fishery to the Indian Creek Nature Center until late afternoon.
The burn will provide bare soil that can be planted into native prairie by ITC.
ITC has offered to convert the non-native cool season grass and brush under its transmission line easement to warm season native prairie. In return, the Parks and Recreation and Fire Departments will conduct controlled burns to help establish and maintain the native ecosystem into the future.
The burn will be coordinated by the Parks and Recreation and Fire Departments.
