The Boone County Conservation Districts prescribed burn season takes place in the Spring and Fall.

The Spring burn season can start as early as March 1st and ends by April 20th. These dates will depend greatly on: when the snow disappears, temperatures stay above freezing during the day, when vegetation start to green, and when wildlife becomes active.

The Fall burn season starts November 1st and continues until the snow sticks or the temperatures are too cold for the water pumps used to control the fire. This can be as late as Christmas in some years.

Adjacent landowners are notified by mail about potential prescribed burn activity each year.
