Prescribed Burn Workshop
[Burn at McKnight Prairie]
A workshop to familiarize landowners and volunteers with prescribed burning techniques in grasslands. Sponsored jointly by the Carleton College Cowling Arboretum and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Division of Fish and Wildlife.
Saturday, April 14, 2012, 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Carleton College - Cowling Arboretum
This workshop was designed for private landowners and volunteers to learn the basics of prescribed burning in grassland situations. Participants learned about the role of fire in habitat management, learned basic prescribed burning methods, and applied some methods in the field to hone their skills. A morning classroom session was followed by an afternoon prescribed burn in the field.
We expect to host this workshop again April 2014. Check back at that time for more details.
