A controlled fire burns at Merry Lea

A controlled burn flashes across a grassland research area at Merry Lea, Monday.  Ryan Sensenig has been studying the grazing habits of deer in the plot, and since grassland areas burn every three-to-four years, it was decided to conduct a controlled burn of Sensenigs research plot.  Aaron Goldstein, Jeremy Good and Darin Schwartzentruber were among students from Sensenig's Environmental Science class who assisted in the burn.  Photo contributed by Ryan Sensenig.
