Edna Taylor Conservation. - Prescribed Burn

March 11, 2018 7:14 AM



The City of Madison Parks Division and Engineering Division will be conducting prescribed burns on areas of existing native vegetation between late March and early May of 2018.  Prescribed burns are an important management tool for Wisconsin's native plant communities.


Prescribed burns that will occur in your area include:

Edna Taylor Conservation Park


The prescribed burn Project Managers will mail postcards to residents in the coming weeks notifying them that a prescribed burn will be taking place this spring in their neighborhood. As in the past, the Dane County Emergency Management automated phone call system will be used to notify relevant neighbors on mornings when we will be burning.


These burns will be conducted by certified professionals with a permit from the Madison Fire Department. The burns will only take place under specific weather conditions in order to manage smoke and minimize impacts to neighbors. In addition, the burn professionals will install appropriate road signage on the day of the burn.


A list of project contacts and more information is on our website at:


Please forward this email to Neighborhood Associations and share this information with all members of your district. Let me know if I can provide more information.  We greatly appreciate your help.


Thank you,

Paul Quinlan
