Land management experts offer prescribed burn classes

The Kansas Grazing Lands Coalition and the Natural Resources Conservation Service are hosting prescribed burn plan trainings across Kansas this month, with a training May 30, 2024, at Burlington as the closest to Osage County.

The burn trainings are offered to landowners, ranchers, producers, burn contractors and others involved in the use of prescribed burns as a land management tool.

Attendees will learn how to optimize land management practices with prescribed burns and properly create burn plans. Access to financial assistance will also be discussed. The sessions, led by KGLC and NRCS experts, will provide opportunity to network with industry professionals and fellow practitioners.

All of the sessions will run 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Training dates and locations are May 28 at Russell; May 29 at Marquette; May 30 at Burlington; and May 31 at Manhattan.
