Noble Foundation Honored by Oklahoma Prescribed Burn Association

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 11:59:23 CDT

Noble Foundation Honored by Oklahoma Prescribed Burn Association  The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation was recently presented with the Oklahoma Prescribed Burn Association (OPBA) Friend of Fire award, as part of Conservation Day at the Capitol in Oklahoma City.


The OPBA Friend of Fire award recognizes an individual or organization that promotes the education and use of prescribed fire throughout Oklahoma and supports the OPBA.


"The Noble Foundation has been a longtime supporter of prescribed fire in the state of Oklahoma and throughout the region," said John Weir, OPBA president. "They have also been instrumental in the formation of the OPBA. Without the generous support of the Noble Foundation through resources and personnel assistance, the OPBA would not be where we are today."


Since the late 1980s, the Noble Foundation has conducted educational workshops to teach proper planning and implementation of prescribed fire. The Noble Foundation also conducts multiple prescribed fires each year on their research and demonstration farms as part of the workshops.


"The goals of the OPBA align with the Noble Foundation's mission to promote responsible stewardship of the land," said Billy Cook, Ph.D., director of the Noble Foundation's Agricultural Division. "Prescribed burns are vital to ensuring the health and vitality of our native rangeland."
