Prescribed Fire Workshop

May 17 @ 9:00 am - May 19 @ 4:00 pm MDT

This is a hands-on, operational training to provide landowners with exposure to the process of responsibly implementing a prescribed burn from start to finish on private property. This
workshop builds on last year’s classroom session, which introduced participants to the foundations of prescribed burning as a management tool. Attendance at last year’s workshop is not a requirement to join this workshop.

Participant groups will be paired with an experienced firefighter and embedded in the process for hands-on experience and Q&A.

YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO:
– Construct fire lines
– Use a drip torch
– Appropriately apply the resources most ranches have on hand (e.g. UTVs, water tanks, etc.)
– Manage risk
– Scout, fire, mop and patrol burn units

Please RSVP To: Katie (katie@ranchadvisory.com) and Kendal (kendal@forestguild.org)
Lodging will be available for those traveling from afar. Meals will be provided.
