RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - The Rocky Mountain Research Station will be burning hay as part of a research project on Oct. 27.

The research will take place in the fire parking lot of the Mystic Ranger District office. Researchers will measure soil temperature and look at key pollinator plant regeneration after a fire.

A fire crew will be on the scene during the experiment and smoke may be visible in the area.
