Landowner Prescribed Fire Workshops

May 25 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Workshops are 1-day events.   Landowners can choose to attend either day (May 25th or May 26th.)

Focus of the workshops will be to instruct landowners and others on prescribed fire planning and implementation and will cover everything from preparing a written burn plan to preparing the fire unit to implementing the fire in a safe and effective manner.  Key concepts will be human and equipment resources, timing, objectives, communications, and SAFETY. 

This class will offer no specific certifications, rather it is an opportunity to simply learn core lessons that apply to conducting safe grassland fires, including discussion and rules on burning CRP and other USDA program lands.

 

Registration fee:  Free to SD Grassland Coalition member, $35 for non-members (includes an annual membership for 2021).
