Enjoy everything you love about Brown Bags from the comfort and safety of your own home.  This spring our Brown Bags will be available in video format through YouTube. Spring Brown Bag videos will be available the third Tuesday of each month and will be approximately 30 minutes long. Call 641-752-5490 or email mccb@marshallcountyia.gov to sign up to receive an email link to the video that you can watch anytime!  This is a great option for assisted living and senior living facilities as well.

 

One of the best management tools for prairies is the use of prescribed fire.  For hundreds of years, Native Americans have practiced "cultural burning" to manage the landscape to promote healthy vegetation, provide food for herd wildlife, and more. Today we still see these benefits when we conduct a controlled burn.  Fire helps us to prevent the encroachment of woody species, provides a more open habitat for certain animal species, and encourages the growth of native plant species. On this Brown Bag, you will join Marshall County Staff on a controlled burn.  Learn about what we do to prepare for prairie burns, the supplies and steps needed to safely complete a controlled fire, and why we use fire as an important management tool.
