Prescribed Burn Workshop

Burn at McKnight Prairie

We host this workshop every other year to familiarize landowners and Arboretum volunteers with prescribed burning techniques in grasslands.  This or similar training is required to participate on Arboretum burns. We expect to host the next workshop in the spring of 2018.

Participants learn about the role of fire in habitat management, basic prescribed burning methods, and apply some methods in the field to hone their skills. This is a full day program, although in some years two half day sessions are held.
