The city of St. Cloud is conducting a prescribed burn of dead aquatic vegetation resulting from a recent aerial herbicide treatment performed along retention berms at Lakefront Park. The prescribed burn is phase two of the city's project to enhance and protect the fish and wildlife habitat that has degraded over decades. The area spans 56 acres. Work will begin today. During this period, the walking trail along Lakeshore Boulevard, the retention berms, fishing pier, boat ramp and Dan Terell Memorial point will be closed. As before, weather conditions could affect the scheduled time and date for this work to be performed.
