Prescribed fire is a natural process in the southern Great Plains, where the landscape evolved under fire and grazing. Fire can improve wildlife habitat, reduce woody plants, remove thatch, and improve forage quality and quantity for livestock.
The most important way to safely burn is to gain experience conducting burns. This field day will be solely focused on providing you with a hands-on experience conducting a burn. If weather parameters are within fire prescription, the field day will be conducted. If parameters are not within fire prescription, the field day will be postponed until the next week.
