Why We Prescribed Burn.

Fire is an essential part of grassland management in the Great Plains. The deliberate use of fire to achieve management goals, called prescribed burning, is used by grassland managers from Montana to Texas. How does fire fit into management plans? What results are being achieved? Is cattle grazing compatible with prescribed fire and healthy grasslands? Visit these demonstration sites to see the challenges managers are facing, what choices they are making, and how the grasslands are responding.
