Update on the Mutel woodland burn

Last fall,  UI senior science writer and archivist Connie Mutel along with her husband, UI professor Robert Mutel, held a controlled burn of their oak woodlands near Iowa City.

The above video showcases the before and after effects of the burn by comparing an unburned section of the woodlands to a burned section.

The burn was also featured in the September issue of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources’ Iowa Outdoors magazine. Read the full article here.

Also, check out the Iowa Environmental Focus’ interview with Connie Mutel on oak woodlands and controlled burns, and our On the Radio segment discussing the benefits of controlled burns.
