We are excited to be hosting 2 fire ecology workshops aimed to provide fire science to landowners and the general public, in partnership with The Nature Conservancy, National Wild Turkey Federation, Missouri Department of Conservation, and Mark Twain National Forest.
We are hitting the road! Come visit our booth, say hi, and check out our portfolio of fire science materials. We are setting up at the Missouri Natural Resources Conference (Feb. 5) and the Oklahoma Natural Resources Conference (Feb. 20-22). See you there!

This research examines native pollinator responses to rangeland management practices in the Central Great Plains, including patch-burn grazing – a management practice that strives to effectively mimic pyric herbivory. The findings of this research indicate that patch-burn grazing has significant potential to restore one of North America’s most endangered groups of wildlife – grassland pollinators – with one of its most dominant land-use enterprises – cattle grazing.

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!
