Various locations, Nebraska; April 2019

The Module kicked off their 2019 spring burning season in the grasslands of Nebraska. Working together with The Nature Conservancy- Nebraska Chapter, the module treated around 1,200 acres across both public and private lands. Landowner engagement and education were key focal points for these burns, with the participation of around 15 private landowners representing a variety of areas of Nebraska, some of which being areas where prescribed fire has not previously been utilized as a management tool.

Landowners were included throughout each step of the planning and conduction processes of the burns, with a strong emphasis placed on training and development.
