Caption: UW Arboretum land care manager Michael Hansen points to a map as he leads a planning meeting for a ten-person staff preparing to set and manage a prescribed burn at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum's Juniper Knoll during spring on March 29, 2016. Hansen is the fire crew leader, also known as the "burn boss," for the prescribed fire. Used as a wildland management tool, prescribed burns help control competing vegetation, reduce potential build up of excess flammable materials, and perpetuate fire-dependent species.
