Spring 2020 Burns

Meskwaki Natural Resources is planning on conducting prescribed burns on the attached map.  Please notify Megan at megan.dietrich@meskwaki-nsn.gov or (641) 484-3511 if you have a location that you would like added to the burn unit map. It is important to remember that not all locations may be burned due to weather conditions or safety concerns such as hazardous surroundings. MNR makes every attempt to get as much burnt on our list as possible.

If your household is near a prioritized burn location, please make every effort to clean the garbage and hazardous materials out of the burn areas (tall grass). Items that we actively avoid from burning include, but is not limited to: abandoned vehicles, tires, plastic pools, trampolines, plastic dog houses, toy vehicles, coolers, tarps, etc. This effort ensures the safety of the fire crew and the health of the environment.

Please call the MNR office (484-3511) and ask to speak to Megan if you have any questions, comments or concerns about our plan.  We will be burning as soon as we have appropriate weather, potentially late March or early April.  Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
