The 2nd Southern Blue Ridge Prescribed Fire Training Exchange (SBR TREX) is scheduled to take place October 30 - November 10, 2023. The SBR TREX Planning Team is in the process of contacting participants who applied for SBR TREX 2021, which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The SBR TREX began in 2018. The objective of this two-week TREX program is to facilitate peer-to-peer, experiential learning for prescribed fire professionals and others interested in advancing their understanding of innovative tools to restore fire-adapted ecosystems. Participants learn, practice, and share knowledge, skills, and experience in a unique, hands-on training environment focused on the ecological, social, communications, monitoring, and operational dimensions of planning and implementing ecologically-based prescribed fire.
