Shortgrass Prescribed Burning Workshop

November 4 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm

Venue

Mosquero Municipal Schools

Are you curious about using prescribed burning in semi-arid rangelands but not sure if it’s safe, effective, and needed? Join us in learning about prescribed burning in the shortgrass prairie. There will be a day-long indoor training on Nov 4 in the Multipurpose Room of the Mosquero Municipal School, as well as a day of hands-on in the field training on the Ute Creek Cattle Company ranch nearby. The hands-on training will be scheduled as weather permits and participants will be contacted directly via email.

Included in the Nov 4th workshop will be reasons for burning, special considerations for the southern shortgrass prairie, what to expect after a burn, how long burn effects will last, regulations affecting prescribed burning, weather conditions needed, formulating a burn plan, and techniques for achieving the burn you want.

This workshop and training is intended for ranchers and others who manage or provide technical services for state and private lands. There is no charge for attending the workshop or prescribed burn training.
