Map and Directions

Prescribed fire is a natural process in the Southern Great Plains, where the landscape evolved under fire and grazing. Fire can improve wildlife habitat, reduce woody plants, remove thatch, and improve forage quality and quantity for livestock.

During this course, you will learn about fire behavior and plant response to burning during the dormant season. You will also learn about prescribed burn plans, fireguards, weather parameters, equipment, labor and contingency plans among other topics.

The most important way to safely burn is to gain experience conducting burns. If weather parameters are within prescription during the field day, we will attempt multiple burns to give you real experience conducting prescribed fire management
