Usually the Land Preservation Committee of Meridian Township assesses ways to keep land, animals, and the environment safe. But on July 20, they were speaking with Ingham County Parks about ways to burn some land down. I love this lead! Ingham Country is looking to be supported by the Land Preservation Committee for prescribed burns, and brought three self-owned areas of land into observation at the discussion. Prescribed burns are controlled slow burning fires used to promote forest management.
