caring for rare plants and controlled burns by Ed Max of West Chicago, Il., prairie plants and fire.

Fire is the key ingredient to maintaining these few prairie remnants we have left in the Chicagoland area, like this one near Wheaton and Carol Stream IL,
Experienced naturalist and landscape designer Ed Max led his team on this annual burn. As seen in this picture…it was a success!
Fire keeps the invasives at bay, and recycles the old growth and debris.
