Prescribed fire workshop in Troy

The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) will conduct a prescribed fire workshop in Troy on Tuesday, Sept. 12. The workshop – which will promote fire as a useful tool to manage grasslands and woodlands, as well as to benefit wildlife – will begin at 12 p.m. at the Troy City Park, at the intersection of Park St. and Myrtle St.

Attendees will learn how to use prescribed burns to achieve management objectives they have for their property. Topics will include benefits from fire, planning burns, necessary equipment, fire behavior, and safety. A hands-on prescribed fire demonstration will follow the workshop. Anyone wishing to assist with the burn should wear leather boots and bring leather gloves. All other materials, and lunch, will be provided. Pre-registration is required by September 11.

To register for the workshop, contact Tyler Warner, KDWPT district wildlife biologist, at (785) 945-6615, or [email protected].
