Spring is the time of year park staff and certified volunteers do prescribed burns at Lapham Peak to help control invasive species and help rejuvenate prairie plants. Buchthorn Buster Duane Stein created a video of a 2015 prairie burn at Lapham Peak. Enjoy the prairie burn video.
Buckthorn Busters (a group of volunteers) have cleared invasive buckthorn and honeysuckle. Work is in all areas of the park. The group works Monday – Friday 9 am to noon. For more information contact park office. The photos show before cutting, a break time, clearing afterwards and burning piles once snow is on the ground.
