Niobrara Valley Preserve Prescribed Fire Training Exchange


  • Niobrara Valley Preserve (map)

This TREX is timed to coordinate with university spring breaks, and participation from college students enrolled in fire or natural resources management curricula is encouraged. It will host about 40 participants, with a goal of burning more than 5,000 acres in north-central Nebraska, including the Niobrara Valley Preserve (The Nature Conservancy), Fort Niobrara/Valentine National Wildlife Refuge Complex (U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service) and private lands. TNC staff also plan to host cooperative burns with regional partners in April, on the Preserve and including cross-boundary burns with neighbors.
