Prescribed Burn Workshop

Burn at McKnight Prairie

Prescribed Burning Workshop

We host this workshop approximately every other year to familiarize participants with prescribed burning techniques in grasslands.  This or similar training is required to participate on Arboretum burns.

Saturday, March 31, 2018: This years workshop is now filled.

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