The City of Winnipeg announced Wednesday it will be conducting controlled burns in natural areas throughout Winnipeg beginning Thursday and continuing until June 12, weather permitting.
The burns will be conducted with fire guards in place, during suitable wind conditions.
The city has been conducting controlled burns annually since the mid-1980s, to help preserve tall grass prairie by burning out invasive weeds.
