SDSU Extension, Others to Host Grassland Fire Workshops

March 18, 2016 06:41 AM

The South Dakota State University Extension wants to teach landowners ways to properly plan for and conduct a prescribed fire.

SDSU Extension has partnered with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and some conservancy groups to host two fire-planning workshops in March.

Workshop topics include USDA rules, firebreak development, tools, weather and safety.

Landowners wanting to use prescribed fire as a management method in their Conservation Reserve Program contracts are required to follow an USDA-approved burn plan.

SDSU Extension range field specialist Pete Bauman says the workshops will offer guidance on the most current version of the USDA plan.

Workshops are scheduled for March 23 in Watertown and March 24 in Huron, S.D.
