    Prescribed Burn Workshop for Landowners
    When: September 26,2015 9AM-1PM
    Where:
    Sloan Conservation Area Headquarters near Greenfield

    The workshop will provide an overview of how to plan and conduct a safe and effective prescribed burn on various habitat types. Prescribed burning is an effective and cost-efficient management tool, however, there are many issues and concerns to be considered. Effective planning is necessary to achieve beneficial effects as well as maintain a safe burn. This program will cover topics related to fire history, planning, weather, safety, and equipment needs.

    Weather permitting, we will conduct a demonstration burn following the course. Bring leather boots and leather gloves.

    Participants are asked to register by contacting Rick Rath 417-209-6876 or Landry Jones 417-326-5189. Lunch will be provided.
