Winnipeg, MB – The City of Winnipeg’s Public Works Department will be conducting controlled burns in various natural areas until June 14, weather conditions permitting. Controlled burns will be conducted in suitable wind conditions with appropriate fire guards in place.
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 on Winnipeg’s tall grass prairies since 1986.

Media inquiries should be directed to the City of Winnipeg Media Inquiry Line
at 204-986-6000 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
