Prescribed Burn Management Class
You can become a Prescribed Burn Manager through a class offered by the Missouri Department of Conservation. Landowners, land managers, and contractors are invited to harness the power of prescribed fire to both achieve their land-management goals and benefit native plants and wildlife through the updated training – Prescribed Burning for Missouri Land Managers.
Through the program, participants will learn to manage a burn that is it is conducted under a prescription of specified environmental conditions, including temperature, humidity, fuel moisture, wind speed and direction. This is a self-paced three-hour online prescribed burn course followed by an all-day field exercise to demonstrate skills learned. The cost of the program is $25 for the online course, but the cost may be covered through a coupon or agency code from an MDC private land conservationist.
