Learn the How, What, When and Why of Prescribed Fire

Prescribed fire can be a great wildlife management tool, but conducting a safe and successful burn isn't as simple as lighting a match. To help landowners plan a prescribed burn and better understand equipment needs, firebreaks, smoke management, and other key considerations, OSU Extension is offering an online "Introduction to Prescribed Fire" course in addition to their free prescribed fire learning resources. 

The 8-hour course has been divided into nine learning modules which can be completed at your own pace.  Learn More.
