New direction needed at DNR Dick Ellis Candidate for governor Tim Michels indicated in October that if elected he would break up the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to serve 1) business and 2 ) the hunting and fishing, or sporting community. “It’s not my opinion that the DNR is broken,” Michels said. “It’s what I hear everywhere I go.” Better days.

Prescribed burn proposed for sections of the Hank Aaron State Trail

http://dnr.wi.gov/news/releases/article/?id=3922  

 

MILWAUKEE, Wis. -- The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is planning to conduct prescribed burning on a small section of the Hank Aaron State Trail in Milwaukee County this spring.

Prescribed burning is part of an ongoing effort to preserve and restore the landscape found within DNR properties throughout Wisconsin. These burns reduce leaf litter, improve wildlife habitat, redistribute nutrients and help control invasive species.

The window for conducting prescribed burns is relatively small, due to special weather conditions required. The moisture level of groundcover, wind speed and direction, and relative humidity must be just right for a safe and successful burn. Please note that planned burns may or may not occur, based on these factors.

Prior to any prescribed burns, trained personnel assess the area to determine wind direction and speed, relative humidity, grass moisture and safety requirements. Qualified personnel control fire behavior through the use of comprehensive planning and specialized fire equipment. Local police and fire officials are notified when and where the burn will take place.

For information regarding prescribed burning or specifics about an individual burn site, contact:

·       Angie Rusch; Wildlife Technician, DNR Pike Lake Unit;(414) 303-0111

·       Melissa Cook, Hank Aaron State Trail Manager,(414)263-8559
