Please join us June 29, 2017 at the Shaw Nature Reserve in Gray Summit, MO for a field tour highlighting the use of prescribed fire to restore ecological diversity and open woodland, glade and prairie natural communities. This tour is sponsored by the Mo Prescribed Fire Council to promote the safe and effective use of prescribed burning within Missouri.

Will green vegetation burn? Does summer burns kill native grass? Can summer burns kill cedars? Are summer fires good for livestock or wildlife? To find out the answers to these and many other questions plan on attending either of the scheduled summer fire field days hosted by the Oklahoma Prescribed Burn Association and others, near Ponca City and Snyder, OK, on June 20 and 27, 2017.

Hosted by the Tallgrass Prairie and Oak Savanna Fire Science Consortium, this two day field tour will visit four actively-managed sites in the dissected glacial plains of southern Iowa and northern Missouri. This area along the Iowa-Missouri border east of Interstate 35 stands out as a diverse mosaic of remnant prairies, savannas, and woodlands.
This field tour, held as part of the Arkansas Wildlife Habitat Restoration on Private Lands Conference on the grounds of the UA Livestock and Forestry Research Station in Batesville, Arkansas will explore the effects of different forest cutting, herbicide, and prescribed fire treatments on forest composition and structure, wildlife habitat, and timber quality. To attend this field tour you need to register for the conference.
Join us for this free field tour at City Rock Bluff on the White River, near Calico Rock, Arkansas. Explore these fascinating glade ecosystems on public and private lands, learn how they are currently being restored and managed using prescribed fire and other treatments, and what this means for eastern collared lizards, rare plants, and more!
