Ramsey County conduct spring burns

Ramsey County Parks & Recreation will conduct prescribed burns of some county-owned prairies and woodlands this spring. Burns are planned to begin in April and run through June. Experienced county staff and contractors work carefully to manage smoke conditions while conducting burns, however, some residents may smell smoke. Prescribed burns improve the growth of native vegetation and helps to control weeds. 

Specific dates and times of the burns are dependent on weather and wind conditions and generally cannot be determined more than one day in advance. Whenever possible, burn information will be shared on ramseycounty.us/parks and the Ramsey County Parks & Recreation Twitter (@RamseyCtyParks) and Facebook pages.

Parks that may be affected include:

Long Lake Regional Park

Battle Creek Regional Park

Tony Schmidt Regional Park

Fish Creek Open Space 

Keller Regional Park

Tamarack Nature Center
