DETAILS

Prescribed burning can be a valuable tool for managing native plant diversity and controlling undesirable vegetation, but it can be dangerous and ineffective when not used properly. This workshop will provide basic information about how to plan and execute a prescribed burn for grassland management.

Upon registration, participants will be given a link to the online portion of the prescribed burn course. The online course is a mandatory prerequisite. Please bring your certificate of completion to the demonstration burn. DIRECTIONS: Due to a managed hunt on this area, the only access is the south entrance. From Gainesville, take Hwy 5 North, turn East on County Road 107 and travel 2.1 miles, pass the shooting range and travel an additional 1 mile to a campground. Staff will meet participants at the campground. We will be conducting a prescribed burn so please dress accordingly with leather boots, leather gloves, cotton pants, cotton long sleeve shirt, and safety glasses. Participants will learn about burn equipment, burn line installation, safe weather parameters, ignition operations, and other techniques to safely conduct a prescribed burn.
