Prescribed Fire Workshop for Landowners

Wednesday, February 22, 2018

This workshop is geared toward landowners who are interested in using prescribed fire to manage prairies and forests, although anyone 18 and older may attend.  Volunteer fire fighters are also encouraged to attend and may find this class helpful in responding to wildfires. 

This one day class is not a certification.  It is a training to make attendees more knowledgeable about using prescribed fire as a management tool.  The class will cover a brief history of fire in Iowa, the benefits of prescribed fire, setting management goals and objectives, the use of burn plans, fire weather, safety and lots more. We will not be conducting a burn, but participants will be invited to come later in the spring and watch or help with a burn.

This class is sponsored by the Lower Iowa & Cedar Valley Conservation Alliance.  Partners include:  US Fish and Wildlife Service, Natural Resources Conservation Service, The Nature Conservancy, Muscatine County Conservation, Louisa County Conservation, and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
