9:00 am – 4:00 pm / Arboretum Office, 710 Three Oaks Drive

A workshop to familiarize landowners 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.

This workshop is designed for private landowners and volunteers to learn the basics of prescribed burning in grassland situations.  Participants will learn about the role of fire in habitat management, learn basic prescribed burning methods, and will apply some methods in the field to hone their skills. A morning classroom session will be followed by an afternoon prescribed burn in the field (weather permitting).
