Wind Cave National Park, S.D. –The 2,199 acre prescribed burn planned for this September in the southwestern corner of Wind Cave National Park has been postponed until October.The wet weather and the green grasses prompted the postponement. Firefighters believe the postponement will enhance the park's ability to reach the burn's objectives of reducing fuel loading in the ponderosa pine forest and decreasing encroachment of young ponderosa pine onto the prairie.
