(Backup Date: August 19th)

A controlled burn within a Pennsylvania forest

The Pennsylvania Prescribed Fire Council in cooperation with the National Deer Association, The Nature Conservancy and Penn State University will be co-sponsoring a ‘Learn and Burn’ workshop to provide an opportunity for private landowners to learn about prescribed burning, its benefits, and be able to observe and participate in a prescribed burn.

This is a one-day workshop that will include indoor presentations in the morning and an outdoor field burn in the afternoon. Lunch will be provided. The workshop is free for PA Prescribed Fire Council (PPFC) members while non-members can join online ($25 membership fee).

The workshop will be limited to 25 attendees, which will be selected through this online application process. Applications to attend the workshop will be accepted through August 10th, 2023 (unless event fills-up; then, registration will be closed).  No experience with prescribed burning is required; however, applicants who are private landowners and are interested in using prescribed fire on their property are preferred.

When: Saturday, August 12, 2023 (backup date of Aug 19 in case of weather)
Where: Aaronsburg, PA (Centre County) – more detailed information will go to registrants
Who: Private landowners interested in prescribed fire
Cost: Free for PA Prescribed Fire Council Members (join online)

*Attendees will not be expected to participate in the burn if they do not wish.
