About This Event

A chance to take in the aftermath of Monday’s prescribed meadow burn.

In the next few days, rain will wash the ash away and spring will conjure up plenty of green in our meadows, erasing most traces of the prescribed fire that took place early in the week. But the ecological consequences of this stewardship practice—at once ancient and cutting-edge—will continue to play out all season long. Why do we conduct controlled burns, how is the fire managed, and what changes should we look for as foliage and fauna return to our landscapes? Talk a walk through the char and soot with us to learn more!

Program Preparation

Please dress for the forecasted weather and bring water and anything else you may need. This class is entirely outdoors. Participants should expect to travel about 2 miles on pavement, gravel, or flat trails for the full duration of the class. Meet in front of the Farm Barn Orientation Center for check-in. We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes before the start of class.
