Libertyville Township uses prescibed burning as a management tool to restore and maintain healthy natural areas on its Open Space. These burns take place when native plants are dormant. Prescribed fire is one of the most efficient and cost effective tools for managing natural areas.
Safety is our highest priority. Our crews are professionally trained and equiped; our primary concern is for the safety of people and property. Weather is a key factor in determining when and where a burn can take place.
Libertyville Township staff also burn brush piles throughout the year to dispose of woody debris.
The following parcels are scheduled for burns for the Spring 2015: Casey South, Lindholm Park, Casey North, Milwaukee, and St. Mary's.
If you have any questions or health concerns or you wish to be notified the day of burn activities, please call the Libertyville Township Open Space District at 847.362.9760.
