Are you curious about using prescribed burning in rangelands, but not sure if it's safe, effective, and needed? Join us in learning about prescribed burning in the North Central Nebraska. Specialists will host an indoor workshop on May 31.
Included in the workshop will be:
- reasons for burning
- special considerations for shortgrass prairie
- what to expect after a burn
- how long burn effects will last
- regulations affecting prescribed burning
- weather conditions needed
- formulating a burn plan
- techniques for achieving the burn you want
A supplemental hands-on prescribed burn will be held at the Tri R Farms, where participants will have a chance to apply prescribed burn techniques.
This workshop and training is intended for ranchers, landowners and others who manage or provide services for private and state lands. There is a no charge for attending the workshop. Lunch will be provided on May 31.
This workshop and training is being conducted by Great Plains Fire Science Exchange, and Kansas State University Cooperative Extension in conjunction with the Tri R Farms. Additional assistance and cooperation provided by the Nebraska Extension, Pheasants Forever, Quail Forever, Mid-Missouri River Prescribed Burn Association, Southern Rockies Fire Science Network, and the Tallgrass Prairie & Oak Savanna Fire Science Consortium.
