Recent legislation (S.F. 844, Sec. 155) specifies that DNR notify Orrock Township in writing at least 40 days before conducting a prescribed burn.


  The MN DNR plans to burn 20-24 brush piles in the Sand Dunes State Forest sometime between August 31, 2017, and April 1, 2018. The actual burn days will depend on the weather and wind direction. The MN DNR doesn’t plan to burn that whole time, it will be about 5-8 days to complete. The specific location and other information can be found at the link below. Sherburne County 911 dispatch center will receive daily notifications each day on which the MN DNR will be burning.
