"Forest on Fire" Program

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.
