Prescribed Burning Aids Producers in Land Management

Tue, 12 Jan 2016 11:39:54 CST

Prescribed Burning Aids Producers in Land Management Prescribed burning is an effective technique in land resource management, but it must be used in a safe and proper manner.


The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host a Prescribed Burn Workshop to discuss the benefits and proper use of prescribed burning for land management. This workshop, which is open to the public, will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 26, at the Noble Foundation Oswalt Road Ranch in Marietta, Oklahoma.


“Most landowners would love to be able to use at their demand, any of Mother Nature’s natural processes – especially rain,” said Russell Stevens, wildlife and range consultant. “Fire comes close; we can apply fire when the weather and other variables fit the prescription outlined in a burn plan. Fire, especially when used correctly, is a powerful and often needed process on grasslands and woodlands of the Southern Great Plains.”


This workshop will help landowners and others who are interested learn the steps of how to safely and successfully conduct a prescribed burn. It will focus on planning a burn and writing a prescribed burn plan, the most important aspect of a prescribed burn. Prescribed burn specialists will break down each part of planning a burn, including goals and objectives, weather, and equipment. A demonstration burn will be conducted in the afternoon (weather permitting).


The registration fee is $20, and lunch will be provided. For more information or to preregister, please visit www.noble.org/agevents or call Maggie Scott at 580-224-6375.
