WINNIPEG - April 18, 2007- The City of Winnipeg, Public Works Department will be conducting a controlled burn during the day on the Moray Street median tall grass prairie planting that surrounds the bison statue south of the Assiniboine River and Charleswood Bridge between Wednesday, April 18 and Wednesday, April 25, 2007 weather conditions permitting.

The controlled burn will be conducted in minimal wind conditions with appropriate fire guards in place. The controlled burn will decrease the risk of wildfires or arson in this area.

Fire plays an important role in the preservation and restoration of prairies. Lack of fire allows weeds to invade these endangered plant communities. Controlled burns have been conducted by the Naturalist Services Branch on Winnipeg’s tall grass prairies since 1311
