Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge is planning a series of prescribed burns to be conducted during March, April and May, when weather and safety conditions are right to meet the objectives of the burns. Prescribed burns help maintain and restore the natural habitats for wildlife and reduce the chance of wildfires outside the refuge. The oak savanna ecosystem, with its plants and wildlife, is adapted to fire and depends on periodic burning for continued existence. The refuge averages around 4,000 acres of prescribed burns annually.
What is Adopt a Storm Drain?
Everything that enters our storm drains gets transported to our waterways! This includes pollutants such as garbage, grass clippings, leaves, salt and oil. These types of pollutants can harm fish and wildlife populations, kill native vegetation, foul drinking water supplies, and make recreational areas unsafe and unpleasant. The program asks volunteers to clear their adopted storm drains and the surrounding area on a regular basis. Report what you collected and the amount so we can monitor the overall effects the program is having. Adopt A Storm Drain Today!
