Prescribed fires are fires intentionally applied on the landscape to achieve desired outcomes.  Desired outcomes may include fuel reduction and wildlife habitat creation.  This tool is widely used to manage woodlands throughout the southeast.  However, it is not used as commonly in Virginia.  

Learn & Burn Workshops give participants a basic understanding of how, when, and why to use precribed fire.  In addition, particpants have the opportunity to gain hands-on burning experience.  

These workshops are offered bi-annually.
