Have you ever watched a controlled prairie burn and wondered why and how they do it?  This is your chance to learn about and participate in an actual prairie burn.  We will evaluate the potential burn site and determine how best it can be burnt.  You will learn to use: two different types of drip torches, backpack sprayers, fire rakes and swatters.  Participants will need to wear a long sleeve shirt and pants, hiking boots, gloves and have a hat and bandana along.

Note:  At least six participants are necessary to makes this all work safely – got a friend who would also be interested in participating?  Class is weather dependent.

If you found this class in our catalog, please note the date has changed from Saturday April 28th to Sunday April 29th.
