The Bureau of Land Management plans to conduct a prescribed burn on Wednesday (23), in the southern portion of the Mittry Lake Wildlife Area. 

The start date and time for the burning operation depends on weather and may be delayed until appropriate conditions occur.  It is estimated that it will take one to two hours to burn the 43 acres of cured Bermuda grass, with smoke visible for approximately 45 minutes. 

The purpose of the burn is to improve the health of the Bermuda grass and to rid the area of salt cedar sprouts and weeds.
