The workshop will be held from 6-9 PM June 24 at the Super 8 motel meeting room, at 1711 South Jefferson Street, at the junction of Route 5 and 76 on the south side of Ava.
MDC officials say the objective of this workshop is to provide an overview of how to plan and conduct a safe and effective prescribed burn on various habitat types. Prescribed burning represents an effective and cost efficient management tool; however, there are many issues and concerns to be considered. Effective planning is necessary to achieve beneficial effects as well as maintain a safe burn. This program will cover topics related to fire history, planning, weather, safety, and equipment needs.
Participants are asked to pre-register at the Ava USDA office or by calling 417-683-4816 extension 3.
