Niagara Parks Commission Has Begun Controlled Burns

April 17th, 2019 

By: Tristen Randall 

Niagara Parks Commission has begun a series of controlled burns today as the spring season takes effect.

The burns help native grasses and plants to fully and properly regenerate after a cold, hard winter season. They also help in eliminating any invasive species that may be harmful to the ecosystem. These will continue throughout April and May. 

If you've seen smoke rising, here are some areas that are being targeted:

-Legends of the Niagara Golf Course

-The Legacy Prairie Garden at the Botanical Garden
