Prairie Preserve Prescribed Burn
On Tuesday, March 7, 2016, with the support of Eastwood and Jeffersontown Fire Departments, The Parklands Natural Areas Team conducted the park’s first prescribed burn. The Prairie Preserve, located just south of the Louisville Loop Pedestrian Bridge in Pope Lick Park, is largely comprised of warm season grasses that can benefit from this tool known to restore prairie, grassland and savanna habitats and reduce occurrences of weedy plants and invasive species.
