DNR Conducts Controlled Burns at Weldon Springs

In the last week, the Department of Natural Resources has conducted controlled burns of its land in DeWitt County. 

On the WHOW Morning Show Monday, DNR Conservation Police Capt. John Williamson tells Regional Radio the controlled burn for parts of Weldon Springs is part of a plan to control invasive species and their spread. 



According to Williamson, controlled burns are very effective because they do not kill off living vegetation. He notes it makes for good fertilizer for the natural grasses you want to grow.



Capt. Williamson says activity at Clinton Lake is starting to pick up with the nice weather outside. We've got plenty more coming with him in the days and weeks ahead on Regional Radio.
