MADISON, Wis. -

The Department of Natural Resources will be conducting burn on public lands this spring in south central Wisconsin, they said in a statement.

All planned burns are weather dependent. Crews are unsure if they will complete all panned burns this season, the Wisconsin Department of Natural resources said.

DNR biologists will start their spring burning schedule as weather permits. Typically, the spring burning season begins in April and extends into mid-May but local weather conditions can lead to an earlier start or a later finish to burning efforts. Burns not completed this spring may be done next fall or winter.

"Controlled or prescribed burning is an ecological and economical method of limiting exotic and unwanted brush invasions that crowd out native vegetation," the state DNR said.

The areas:

  • Badger State Trail
  • Lake Kegonsa
  • Lodi Marsh
  • Mazomanie Oak Barrens
  • Olson Oak Woods
  • Sugar River Wetlands
  • Anthony Branch FA
  • Kessler Railroad Prairie SNA
  • Rock River Prairie SNA
  • Swenson Wet Prairie SNA
  • Avon Bottoms WA
  • Babbs EWHA
  • Evansville WA
  • Allen Creek SBPA
  • Footville PHG
