Burning Rock Run: Fire Management in a Will County Marshland

From my perch this morning at the Joliet Public Library’s West Branch, I’m looking out at the Rock Run Forest Preserve of Will County, which is adjacent to the library. Looks like folks from the FPDWC are doing a prescribed burn today in the preserve’s woodland that borders the big marsh.

A good view as I work on my biodiversity online discussion forum for my Sustainable Future class!
