Missouri prescribed fire workshops for landowners

The Missouri Department of Conservation will offer several workshops this spring for landowners interested in learning how to use prescribed fire. Each workshop will consist of a classroom session followed by a demonstration burn, weather permitting.

All workshops are free to attend, but participants must pre-register.

Workshops are listed below. Visit the Missouri Department of Conservation website to learn more.
