One of the ways to maintain a prairie is to burn it every few years which CSA accomplished during Arbor Day. The weather and wind conditions were favorable. The burn was controlled and all safety precautions were taken.
On the northern part of the property ongoing reforestation continues where, years ago, trees where planted to prevent soil erosion.
Properties maintenance crew Mark, Jim and Jimmer Immel planted newly types of oak (burr, pin, red, white and swamp), sugar maple,
black cherry and evergreens in the CSA property grounds beside the many springs flowing down to the motherhouse.
