Prescribed Fire

Upcoming Events

Prescribed Burn Associations, like any other volunteer group, depend on members who are willing to lend their time and resources to accomplish mutually beneficial goals for everyone involved. Burn association members must attend a basic burn workshop and participate in at least 1-2 burns each year. A small favor to ask, considering the benefit of having access to a network of people and a mobile prescribed burn trailer, complete with about $28,000 worth of burn equipment. There are ten active Prescribed Burn Associations in Nebraska.

Generally, individual landowners interested in prescribed fire lack sufficient training or resources to achieve their goals independently. For this reason, Pheasants Forever, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, and other conservation partners led an effort to educate, empower, and align land stewards who share a common goal, to increase the health of the land as Mother Nature intended, with fire. Pheasants Forever offers basic and advanced workshops to increase prescribed fire knowledge and skills among Nebraskans. Since 2008, a total of 92 workshops, with 2,053 attendees, have occurred throughout the state.
