Great Plains Fire Tour

March 25 2018 - April 7, 2018

Workshop Flyer Workshop Flyer

We are excited to offer this unique opportunity to tour the Great Plains and conduct prescribed fires in four states. During the tour, we will spend three days each in Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, and South Dakota. While in each state, participants will team with local prescribed fire practitioners to deliver ecologically meaningful fire to the landscape. Participants will be exposed to many of the different fuels, topographies, leadership styles, landownership patterns, prescribed fire tactics, and organizational formats that are present throughout the Great Plains. Time will be used on non-burn days to tour fire research sites, past wildfire locations, and fire management plans.
