Connemara Burn 2023-43

January 26, 2023 Prescribed Burn at Connemara Meadow


The January 26, 2023 prescribed burn at Connemara was a tremendous win for the Meadow, one that has been years in the making.

Periodic fire is critical to the health of the Blackland Prairie ecosystem. It removes thatch, stimulates germination and regrowth, and helps control certain invasive plants.

Many thanks to everyone who helped make it happen, including numerous meadow volunteers, and especially Captain Michael Covey and the Plano Fire-Rescue Wildland Team.
