An ecological burn is being conducted at The Commons Point in between the two beaches on Tuesday, May 7th in the afternoon. Ecological, prescribed burns restore the health and vigor of native vegetation, reduces weeds and exotic plants, enhances wildlife habitat, removes biomass cost-effectively, increases plant diversity, and releases nutrients vital to new plant growth. The burn also helps to maintain the ecological restoration that occurred at The Point.
The Excelsior Fire Department and DNR have been made aware of the burn.
If you have any questions, please contact Public Works Superintendent Tim Amundsen at (952) 653-3676.
