April Burn Bans in Effect

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) reminds Kansans that March and April are a time when large areas of the state's Flint Hills rangeland are burned. These burns help preserve the tallgrass prairie by controlling invasive species. Smoke from the burns can influence the air quality of downwind areas. The use of smoke management techniques is vital to reduce impacts.
