2009 burn scheduled for April 2

“Wet Meadow Burn”: Buhr Park Children’s Wet Meadow. City natural area program staff conduct the annual prescribed burn of the wet meadow, and participants then scatter native plant seeds on the meadow. “It’s quite a sight--my daughter has gone to prescribed burns since age 2 and loves them,” says one parent. “I think it’s quite safe for kids of any age if they’re with a parent.” If you’d like to help prepare for the burn, show up at 4 p.m. with a garden rake (for leaf spreading) and a paper shopping bag (for seed collecting). 5 p.m., Buhr Park, 2751 Packard 48104. Free. 971-5870

Everyone's watching the weather today. If it rains a lot the burn will be dut off for a day or two.
