Wind Cave National Park
Wind Cave National Park began a prescribed burning program in 1972. Since that time various studies have been carried out to investigate what effect fire has on the vegetative communities within the Park. However, no study has dealt with the effects of fire on the bird and mammal population within the grassland association.
