Annual burning of prairie vegetation is an important management technique. In Illinois, burning requires a permit from the Illinois EPA. Local fire departments should be notified and may want to be present. A burn should be administered by trained personnel operating under appropriate weather conditions. Many of the public jurisdictions, such as forest preserve districts, and private conservation organizations involved in ecological restoration activities have expertise in how to conduct a controlled burn.
