Prairie Burns on Springfield Campus

LLCC will be conducting controlled burns on the prairie areas of campus over the next few weeks, weather permitting. The burns will be conducted on the upper prairie on the north side of Menard Hall, on the south and west sides of the Workforce Careers Center and on both sides of the entrance to campus.

The controlled burns are a coordinated effort of LLCC’s Facilities Services department, biology classes and the LLCC Environmental Club. The burns have been approved by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.
