Missouri Ozarks Landowners Fire Ecology Workshop Series

We are excited to be hosting 3 upcoming fire ecology workshops aimed to deliver fire science to interested landowners and members of the general public. These workshops will have indoor presentations and in-the-field discussion and are organized in partnership with The Nature Conservancy, National Wild Turkey Federation, Missouri Department of Conservation, Mark Twain National Forest, and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. Contact Joe Marschall with questions:

Learn about: 

  • the historical role and ecology of fire in the Missouri Ozarks

  • why public land managers in southern Missouri use prescribed fire

  • how fire can be used to manage wildlife habitat

  • technical and cost sharing opportunities for fire management on private propery

LUNCH PROVIDED!! (Many thanks to the Missouri Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation and the Conservation Federation of Missouri!)
