Burn Baby Burn

It was a crisp, sunny day, one of the last good days for burning this spring, if for no other reason that soon the new plants will be too tall! So we (that is, over 8- 5-6th grade students, their teachers and a few trained professionals) set the prairie ablaze and watched the orange consume the brown grasses, changing the prairie to black. When we return on Monday, it will be probably already be green! A lot of change in the prairie right now...

And... I know it's spring because the bur oak buds have turned green and expanded. When oaks leaf out and flower, there's no turning back! (You hear me, winter? No turning back!)
