The Missouri Department of Conservation will hold a prescribed burn workshop for area landowners at the Lincoln County Health Department (#5 Health Department Drive, Troy) on Saturday, Feb. 22, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The course will be taught by MDC certified burners, and participants will learn about the value and purpose of prescribed fire as a land management tool.
Attendees will receive instruction on how to safely and effectively plan and conduct a controlled burn, and we’ll also discuss situations where prescribed burning might benefit your property and your wildlife habitat.
Weather permitting, a demonstration burn will be conducted that afternoon.
Seating is limited so please call the Lincoln County SWCD office at 636-528-4877 ext. 3 to register.
