Invasive Species Burn at Lake Newport

Beginning Saturday, December 1 through December 31, 2018, Mill Creek MetroParks will be conducting an open burn at the Newport Wetlands on weekdays from approximately 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. The burn will not impact access to or use of facilities in and around the wetlands. Invasive species, along with small undesirable trees and shrubs, will be cut and burned in small piles with the fire being completely extinguished each day. Open burning is a form of recognized horticultural, silvicultural, and invasive species management.
