Ecological Fire Training
Come and feel the burn on March 25th!
Prescribed burns clear away dead brush and invasive species while ensuring healthy habitats. Our restoration ecologist Melissa Grycan is the fire expert and will train you on how to safely manage woodlands, wetlands and prairies.
Topics to be covered include why fire is important to the ecology of the area, the tools used, safety considerations, and the techniques used to conduct a prescribed burn. The training will include 3 hours of classroom instruction at Hennen Conservation Area, followed by a prescribed burn at Hennen (weather permitting).
Safety equipment will be provided and lunch is included. Dress for both indoor and outdoor weather.
