PRESCRIBED BURN WORKSHOP

Conducted by Texas Parks and Wildlife To be held in Lee County on December 11

A field day on the safe and effective use of fire to improve habitat for wildlife will be available to anyone interested at no charge. The objective of this class is to show landowners what benefits fire can provide for vegetation management, when and how fire can be used safely and what help is available to landowners who want to burn. Topics will include site selection, preparation, what tools and equipment are needed, and all the how-to’s. If conditions allow, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a prescribed burn.

The workshop will be on December 11 in Lee County, but is open to anyone interested. Prescribed burning has been used on this property for several years, therefore you will be able to see what impact repeated fire can have on manipulating vegetation. Drinks and lunch will be provided by the Lee County Wildlife Association.

Please RSVP for this workshop by December 7th to Greg Pleasant at 979-540-2744 or e-mail tpwbiologist@bluebon.net. The address is 1757 CR 121, in Giddings. Call or e-mail for more directions or information.

Registration will start at 8:00 a.m. and the program will start at 8:30 a.m. Attendees should come dressed to work. This includes leather boots, cotton pants and long sleeve shirt, and leather gloves. Depending on what we burn we should be done around 1:30 p.m. or so.
