Prescribed burns as Westbrook Artists Site - 2016
Burn at the lower field (in Conservation Reserve Program CRP program from 2000-2015) on March 18th 2016. Our burn team was led by Darryl Mills and Cheri Grauer. The burn had originally been planned for Saturday, March 12th. Due to weather rain we had to delay the burn several times. We scaled back on the public aspects and just focused on getting it "in the books." Darryl and Kevin surveyed conditions at 10am and determined a start time around 4pm. Sandi Thompkins joined us and we did a quick and informal burn that wrapped up in two and half hours. The results were pretty good with about 50-60% coverage. A burn next year should produce good results on this field.
