Prescribed Burning Workshop planned


The Central Kansas Extension District will be hosting a Prescribed Burning Workshop on Nov. 8 at the Ottawa County Courthouse Meeting Room in Minneapolis. This program will give rangeland, pasture, and CRP managers an in-depth look at prescribed burning, its benefits, and implementation. It will be designed to help with the understanding of the nature of fire and prepare participants to begin using prescribed burning by updating their existing knowledge and abilities.

Registration for the event will begin at 9 a.m. with the program beginning at 9:30 a.m. Highlights of the workshop include: Reasons for Conducting a Prescribed Burn; Notification, Regulations, and Permits; Weather Considerations; Liability and Burning Assistance; Equipment, Hazards, and Firebreaks; Planning and Conducting a Burn--Methods, Techniques, and Preparation--Fuel Loads, Fire Behavior, and Smoke Management; and Prescribed Burning Cooperatives.

Presenters will include representatives from the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Farm Service Agency, Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks, K-State Research and Extension, as well as local fire and emergency management staff.

Cost to attend is $10 per person for those that pre-register and $15 at the door for those that do not. This fee includes a prescribed burning workbook, refreshments, and lunch. Those wishing to attend this event should contact the CKD Extension Office in Minneapolis at 785-392-2147 or Salina at 785-309-5850 by Nov. 3.
