Prescribed burn workshop scheduled Aug. 7-9 at Sonora

A prescribed burn workshop is scheduled Aug. 7-9 at the Texas AgriLife Research Station at Sonora.

The burn workshop is a prerequisite to the advanced burn workshop, said Ray Hinnant, AgriLife Research senior research associate and instructor.

“Individuals completing both workshops satisfy the educational component for a certified prescribed burn manager,” he said.

The August workshop will provide basic information on prescribed burning, which is used to control invasive plants and manipulate habitat for wildlife and livestock on rangeland.

“We will discuss weather, fuels and equipment, as well as planning for a prescribed burn, during this workshop,” Hinnant said. “Anyone wanting to use fire as a management tool on rangeland will want to attend this workshop.”

The cost is $395 and covers meals and lodging at the Sonora station.
