Big Burn, Little Burn, Flicker
Bernheim uses fire as a tool to help re-establish native grasslands. In my backyard I'm doing the same thing on a smaller scale. Little bluestem, Indian grass, prairie dropseed, Virginia wild rye, bottlebrush grass, river oats, and a bunch of native wildflowers do very well with periodic burns.
To be clear about this... burning like this is ILLEGAL in the city. I have no idea who set my native grass patch on fire?
I'd like to make a formal complaint.
