Ankeny Community School District to Conduct Controlled Burns

Ankeny Community School District will conduct controlled burns at Ankeny Centennial High School, Ankeny High School, and Crocker Elementary School as weather conditions allow.

The school district’s burn permit runs from now until June 1, 2021, work will be done as site conditions allow during this time-frame. Burn times and locations will be announced via the district website, www.ankenyschools.org, Facebook, and Twitter.

Natural and native areas need periodic fires to thrive and prescribed burning is an important, cost-effective tool for maintaining and restoring native plant communities and wildlife habitat, managing invasive species, and reducing wildfire danger. Many of the plants and animals of Iowa’s woodlands, prairies, and wetlands are fire adapted.

Ankeny School District grounds crew, trained in wild land firefighting, are working with local fire rescue agencies, police, and county health department to insure safe, successful burn events.
