Prescribed Fire Meadow Management

Pearlstone’s commitment to stewardship is deeply rooted in our Jewish values, honors the indigenous inhabitants of this land, and is beautifully embodied through our daily work.

As we studied how to better care for our 180 acre campus – including our own lawns – we learned more about the role fire plays in healthy ecosystems.

We’ve been inspired by the challenge, opportunity, and joy of learning how to practically weave ancestral and ecological wisdom of using fire into our rhythmic stewardship of the land.

Prescribed fire can be an extremely effective tool for managing ecosystem health and improving wildlife habitats. The process involves the controlled application of fire by a team of experts under specified weather conditions with specialized equipment.

Why Use Prescribed Fire? Benefits include:
  • Improve wildlife habitat and forage
  • Recycle nutrients into soil
  • Control undesirable and invasive species
