The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources has been working with Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill to improve portions of their property for wildlife. A large part of that is conversion of Fescue grass pasture to native short-grass prairie habitat. Fire is an important tool in maintaining and promoting this prairie. We still had a few additional acres at Shaker Village that needed to be burned before the growing season begins in earnest. With temperatures in the 70’s, green-up is rapidly beginning and Wednesday would be our last chance to burn. These are a few pictures from Wednesday’s burn, the last dormant season burn at Shaker Village for this season.
