Prescribed burn video – Missouri’s Tucker Prairie

Prairies that were spared by devastating plow are rare, so getting to witness prescribed fire in a remnant prairie is a step back in time; despite all the modern day wildland fire equipment used.  Grasslands, prairies especially (reconstructed or remnants), cannot exist without fire.  Without repeating myself too much, that is all I have to say in this brief post.
