Prescribed Fire on Private Lands Workshops
May 14th- May 15th UC Blodgett Forest Research, Georgetown, CA
May 16th-17th UC Sierra Foothill Research and Extension Center, Browns Valley, CA
UCCE Cooperative Extension will be hosting two two-day workshops in May 2018 designed for landowners and land managers looking to gain skills in prescribed fire planning and implementation. They will included a day of presentations and training and a day of field trip and live burning (weather permitting).
Day One will consist of a classroom session with speakers and Q&A on:
• Local fire history and current fire research
• Prescribed fire permitting and legal considerations
• Cal Fire’s Vegetation Management Program
• Fire weather forecasting and online tools
• Air quality and smoke management
• Prescribed burn associations
• Fire terms and fire behavior
• Burn plan development
• Burn unit preparation
• Tools and equipment
Day Two will consist of a morning training followed by on the ground prescribed fire demonstration (pending weather and permits). Participants must attend both days to partake in burning. If we are unable to perform a live burn for any reason, day two will include a tour of recent prescribed fire activity and research at Blodgett Forest Research Station.
Who Should Attend: Landowners and managers wanting to learn more about prescribed fire planning and implementation. No previous experience or fire qualifications are required.
