A FREE prescribed burn workshop near Cameron will be held September 15th at the Pony Express Conservation Area. The Missouri Department of Conservation says prescribed burning of grasslands and savannas can be a valuable tool for boosting native plant diversity and controlling undesirable vegetation. This can benefit wildlife, and in some applications, benefit cattle forage. This workshop will provide training on planning a burn, what equipment is needed, what weather and fuel conditions should be heeded, and safety.
Participants who register will be given a link to the virtual online portion of the prescribed burn course. The online course is a mandatory prerequisite before attending the workshop on September 15th. Participants are asked to bring their certificate of completion to the workshop.
Registration is required. To register, participants must be at least 18 and register online at https://short.mdc.mo.gov/4cS.
