[ARCHIVED] Prescribed Burn at Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center

Firefighter lighting prairie for prescribed burn

On Jan. 27, Denton Parks and Recreation in partnership with the City of Denton Fire Department conducted a prescribed burn on 6.4 acres at the Davis Prairie Loop just north of the Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center, located at 5792 Hartlee Field Rd.

This is a natural grassland that is overgrown with dead vegetation. A prescribed burn will help clear out undergrowth, fertilize the ground, and spur new growth of native grasses and wildflowers. It will also allow fire personnel to get needed wildland fire training for TIFMAS (Texas Intrastate Fire Mutual Aid System) task books for state wildland deployments.

We can’t wait to see all the wildflowers that sprout this spring!

Get a bird's eye view of the burn and hear from Fire Battalion Chief David Boots on the City of Denton Facebook page.
