Description

The Refugio-Goliad Prairie (RGP) Fire Learning Network (FLN) Demonstration Landscape (664,000 acres) is located on the Texas Gulf Coast within the Gulf Coast Prairies and Marshes Ecoregion. To maintain and restore prairie, we must reinvigorate the vanishing culture of fire in private landowners to meet conservation and socioeconomic goals. This study is an attempt to quantify and set a baseline for monitoring landowner burning and other fire events since 2001.
