Southeastern Prescribed Fire Council Gathering on October 24, 2014

There will be a gathering of Southeastern Prescribed Fire Councils on Friday, Oct 24, 2014 in Mobile, AL following the  Longleaf Alliance Biennial Conference & Eastern Native Grass Symposium. If you are a member of a Prescribed Fire Council in any Southeastern state, please join this meeting!

This meeting will showcase efforts by several SE Councils and involve a wider discussion on how we all work together on some of the “wicked problems” and inspiring opportunities that face the future of prescribed fire in the region.  At a minimum, we’ll all see what other SE Councils have been doing (Mississippi coordinating private landowner burning workshops, North Carolina coordinating an upcoming Training Exchange, widespread declarations of support for burning in Georgia’s counties) and come away with fresh ideas on how to maintain and grow our important work. As always, we’ll have informal time to discuss and share ideas, both during the session and later that evening.
