La Crosse to burn invasive species on Grandad Bluff in the coming weeks

Grandad Bluff Area

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Grandad Bluff Park overlook is scheduled to undergo invasive and undesirable species removal and prescribed burning of brush piles from Monday through Dec. 11, according to the La Crosse Parks and Recreation Department.

Following the removal of the invasive species, the area will be planted with native species. The project area lies within the monarch butterfly migration corridor and will provide critical breeding, feeding, and migratory stopover habitat for monarch butterflies and other species.

The overlook may be closed intermittently. The parks department asks that people obey posted signs and fencing when it is closed.
