Braker Discusses Prescribed Fire Techniques

February 18, 2013

Nancy Braker, Puzak Family Director of the Cowling Arboretum, recently organized and presented on a panel entitled, “Integrating College and University Students and Prescribed Fire,” at the Tallgrass Prairie and Oak Savanna Conference in Dubuque, Iowa. The session focused on effective methods of land conservation and how they can be implemented at colleges and universities. At these institutions, the land provides sites for field-based research and classroom options for their campuses. The panel discussed how to organize and implement a fire program and provided students with opportunities to learn about fire effects first hand, participate in fire-related research projects, observe fire operations, and participate in fire crews.
