Annual Spring Burn

Every year in March or April, the City of Ann Arbor's Natural Areas Preservation (NAP) conducts a prescribed burn of some of the wet meadows.

2024 Buhr Park Children's Wet Meadow Burn

took place Friday, March 29th 4:00 pm 

It was at Wet Meadow III (near the sidewalk between Essex Rd and Allen School)
(Burns in other natural areas in Buhr Park may precede 4pm.)

Join us as we hear about the history and importance of prescribed burns and watch as one transforms the dead plant stalks into food for soon to emerge native plants.

As always, the event is free and open to the public.

*Prescribed burns require dry, low wind and humidity weather.  If the weather looks questionable, check the website, Facebook or call Jeannine at 734-971-5870. If cancelled that day it will be postponed to the next until weather is suitable.

The Buhr Park Children's Wet Meadow Project created and supports a group of wet meadow ecosystems in Ann Arbor's Buhr Park. The wet meadows provide a habitat for native plants and animals, an attractive educational site for children, neighbors and other visitors, and an environmental filter for stormwater runoff from the park grounds.
