Prescribed Fire Training and Demonstration

Prescribed Fire Training and Demonstration NMSU Corona Range and Livestock Research Center Target Burn Date: February 22, 23, or 24, 2017 (Weather Permitting) Sponsored by NMSU Cooperative Extension and NM Prescribed Fire Council Are you interested in learning how to actually use prescribed fire as a management tool on your private property? Maybe you attended one of our prescribed fire workshops and gained valuable knowledge. However, there is a significant leap between classroom learning and drip torch lighting. We invite you to join us at the NMSU Corona Range and Livestock Research Center where you will have an opportunity to get a drip torch in your hand and gain firsthand experience and skills necessary to safely and successfully use fire as a management tool. Because using fire is weather dependent, we have designated three days in late February as target burn days; specifically February 22, 23 and 24. A week before the target burn day we will contact all registered participants with a projected burn window given the weather forecast and proceed accordingly. To register for the prescribed fire training visit our webpage and click on the registration link. Additional details will be forthcoming. For more information contact Doug Cram, 575-646-8130, dcram@nmsu.edu or contact the NM Prescribed Fire Council.
