SONORA - Ranch owners and managers who are interested in learning about prescribed burning are invited to an Academy for Ranch Management workshop on Jan. 23-25 at the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station at Sonora.
The workshop is designed to teach fire characteristics, how to plan and carry out a prescribed burn, habitat manipulation, and post-burn management.
Participants will be able to see the results of different prescribed burns at the station that have been conducted throughout the year. Attendees will develop a burning plan and participate in a practice burn.
To assist them when they return to their ranches, participants will receive a CD-ROM that contains a burning plan worksheet and cost estimator.
Individuals are urged to register early for the workshop. The cost is $395 which includes lodging and meals.
For more information about registration or directions to the station, contact Ray Hinnant at (979)845-5580 or email@example.com
