Fire Management

A firefighter drips fire into an open field of brown grass.
A firefighter watches over a prescribed burn at Rice Lake Flats and helps keep it within the planned boundary. Before any prescribed fires are permitted, a park must complete a Fire Management Plan and a prescribed burn plan.

The Fire Management Plan and appendices are available upon request by contacting the St. Croix River Visitor Center in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin, at 715-483-2274 or e-mail us.
