As part of Roosevelt University’s commitment to restoring a healthy prairie ecosystem at our Schaumburg Campus, we will be conducting a prescribed burn of the Campus native prairie this week. The date will be determined by the weather.
Fire has been used throughout history as a way to regulate our ecosystem by removing non-native species, improving habitats for native plants and animals and returning nutrients to the soil.
For more information, contact Thomas Shelton, Environmental Sustainability and Transportation Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org). See the RU Green Campus website for more information on our sustainability practices and activities.
