October 21, 2003 --
Join a team of US Forest Service wildland firefighters and biologists as they illustrate the methods and
techniques of prescribed fire used in our Southern forests. This hands-on program will exhibit the
biological necessity of fire, the use of prescribed fire in controlling wildfires, and the use of fire by previous cultures. Conditions permitting, the Forest
Service will conduct a prescribed fire for all to see. Participants will also receive training to assist the Forest Service in the Forest Burn Monitoring
Program. Bring lunch and drinking water. Pre-registration is required. To register, call Matt Beall at 256-782-5697.
JSU's Little River Canyon Field School is now accepting reservations for this program. Those interested are encouraged to call
