Prescribed Fire on Private Lands Online Workshops
Are you interested in using prescribed fire as a vegetation or fire fuel management tool?
Would you like to learn more about options for prescribed fire on private lands, laws and permits, and community-based Prescribed Burn Associations (PBA)?
If so, this online training series is for you!
This training is designed for landowners, land managers, and anyone interested in learning more about fire ecology, how to plan and implement prescribed burns. The webinar will highlight successes from other counties, including the PBA model that is currently gaining momentum in counties across California.
Whether you live in a mixed conifer forest, oak woodland, chaparral or grassland habitat, returning prescribed fire to California can be part of a well-managed property. This training will be conducted completely online in five 1-1/2-hour moderated sessions.
The webinar sessions will be held online every Wednesday in May and the first Wednesday in June at 10:00 to 11:30 am. The cost is free, but registration is required. Join us for one or all sessions:
Session 1—Fire Ecology
Session 3—Prescribed Fire Planning
Session 4—Resources for Burning
Session 5—Benefits of Cultural Burn & Round table discussion about next step/PBA interest
