Intro into Prescribed Burns | Everyday Environment Webinars

Get the burning basics to successful prescribed burns

Prescribed fire can be complex and difficult in many respects, but also results in numerous benefits. This presentation will provide an overview of prescribed fire, including reasons to burn, burn plans, preparations, weather considerations, permits, training options, tools, risks, hazards, and effects on vegetation and wildlife. This will be a broad introduction so resources will be provided for additional information, training opportunities, and volunteering for those who are interested in learning more.

Presenter: Kevin Rohling
