Whether you manage ten or ten thousand acres, prescribed fire should be part of your land management plan. Burning should be conducted to ensure that your management objectives will be met, while minimizing the likelihood for escaped fire and smoke liability. This one-day workshop will outline benefits of using fire as a management tool on your property, where to go, and who to contact when you need assistance, and how burns are conducted safely and successfully. You will also have the chance to actively participate in a prescribed burn (conditions permitting).
Who Should Take This Course:
Private landowners who are interested in using prescribed burning to safely and effectively meet their woodland management goals.
