John Finnell, Hinsdale's forestry and parks superintendent, uses a drip torch to start burning the prairie along Charleston Road in Hinsdale late last month. The annual burn along Charleston and the Jackson Street prairie occurs each spring to keep invasive species at bay and give room for the preferred prairie plants to grow. (Jim Slonoff photo)
