Burning of native grasses in our area goes back hundreds of years and is responsible for the development of the grassy Great Plains. Frontier Extension District will hold a meeting to discuss the reasons to burn, how to plan and conduct a prescribed burn, and how to be safe while burning, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Feb. 24, 2016, at the community building on the Anderson County Fairgrounds, Garnett.

Reservations are required by Feb. 19. The first 30 people to register will be admitted free of charge; others will be charged $10 for reference materials.

A chili lunch will be available and donations to cover meal costs will be accepted.

To register or for more information, call Rod Schaub, Frontier Extension District agent, at 785-828-4438, or Debbie Davis, Anderson County Conservation District, at 785-448-6323.
