March Driptorch Digest

The March edition of the Driptorch Digest is now available here. We know it covers a lot of information (you all have been busy this month!), but didn’t want you to miss these highlights:

  • Recordings from many of the AFE Fire Ecology and Management conference special sessions, plenary sessions and AFEx Talks are now online thanks to the Southern Fire Exchange, University of Florida and the Association for Fire Ecology. CLICK HERE
  • Looking for some new mobile apps as you prepare for prescribed fire season? The Southern Fire Exchange has categorized lists of apps that may help you be more effective this year. CLICK HERE
  • Please to report your prescribed burn to the OPBA website. No personal information is required and you will not be contacted or added to any list. If you have questions about this effort, please contact John Weir, Research Associate at Oklahoma State University.
  • Cooperative Extension personnel and Cohesive Strategy Coordinators nationwide are working to provide this public portal webpage with essential wildland fire education and outreach materials. Over 200 links to publications, flyers, videos, posters and more are available.
  • What is 7 feet tall, wears Nomex, carries a drip torch and chirps when he speaks?  You got it, Burner Bob, the larger-than-life super hero of prescribed fire education in the southeastern region. If Bob is not available to visit your event, his educational materials are. Coloring books, posters and more can be found at the educational store section of the Longleaf Alliance website.
