Lunch & Learn: The Do’s and Don’ts of Prescribed Fire on Private Land
February 16, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Discover more about the National Park in your backyard! Tune in and turn your lunch hour into the best part of your day through Wild Rivers Conservancy’s limited webinar series, Lunch & Learn. We’ll explore topics that resonate throughout the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway and bring the experts to the comfort of your home, office, or wherever you may find yourself. Cozy up, grab lunch and get ready to learn about the natural resources of the St. Croix and Namekagon Rivers.
Did you know that fire can be a good thing? Prescribed fire is used by a variety of governmental agencies and private companies to restore health to ecosystems. During this webinar, Alex Wenthe, the current chair of the education and Outreach Committee for the WI prescribed Fire Council and owner of Quercus Land Stewardship Service, will join us to talk about common problems seen by private landowners and how prescribed burns can offer solutions. We will also discuss the planning of a prescribed fire from beginning to end – including burn unit selection, burn planning, weather, equipment, and ignition.
*Please note: This brief introduction will not qualify you to conduct a prescribed burn, but will hopefully allow you to start the process or ask questions you already have.
This webinar is FREE, but registration is required.
