We are pleased to announce plans for Florida’s 2019 Prescribed Fire for Wildlife class. This class is designed for private landowners interested in providing better wildlife habitat by incorporating prescribed fire in their land management program. Our overall theme for this class is “Prescribed Fire & Wildlife Stewardship: Promoting Excellence in all Operational Phases”. Please take a moment to review the agenda and mark the dates on your calendar.
The event will take place at the North Florida Research and Education Center, Quincy Campus. The NFREC is located just north of Interstate 10 at exit 181, at 155 Research Rd. From I-10, take Exit #181 (SR-267), and drive north approximately ¼ mile. The entrance to NFREC is on the left at Research Road. Enter through the gate and follow signs to the main building. The training will take place in the seminar room near the main entrance.
This class will provide a comprehensive learning experience through lectures, panel discussions, and field exercises on local private lands. A series of presentations by experienced prescribed burners and wildlife biologists will cover fundamental topics. Panel discussions with experts will encourage information exchange based on proven practices and principles for managing Florida wildlife habitats. Field exercises will allow participants to work in small groups to begin incorporating ideas into their prescribed fire operations through effective planning.
