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.
Additional Information: Instructed by:
This is a 2-part introduction to the safe use of prescribed fire for Missouri land managers consisting of online and in-person portions. At the field portion, we will be conducting a prescribed burn on a nearby property, TBD. Please dress accordingly with leather boots, leather gloves, pants and long sleeve shirt made with natural fibers (like cotton - no synthetics), 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.. Upon registration, participants will be emailed a link to the virtual/online portion of the prescribed burn course (emails are sent in the morning, M-F). The online course is a mandatory prerequisite, requiring successful completion of the course followed by a quiz. Please bring your certificate of completion to the demonstration burn. The online portion of the class will require a $25 fee to a third-party host. Brad Graevs
