Join the Flint Hills Discovery Center, Kansas State University, and Riley County Conservation district for a memorable morning of prescribed burning. The Public Fire Workshop is your opportunity for hands-on training in this essential element of the Flint Hills.

Participants attend a required classroom session at the Discovery Center on Thursday, September 6 from 6-8pm to learn about prescribed burning and fire safety from K-State professors Carol Baldwin and Drew Rickets. Then, participate in an 80 acre prescribed burn on a following Saturday. First burn date is September 8. Make-up dates are September 15, 22, and 29.
