AVA, Mo. -- The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) will be offering a Prescribed Fire Workshop for landowners on Tuesday, June 24, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Super 8 motel meeting room, 1711 South Jefferson St. at the junction of Route 5 and 76 on the southside of Ava. 

The workshop will provide an overview of how to plan and conduct a safe and effective prescribed burn on various habitat types. Prescribed burning is an effective and cost-efficient management tool, however, there are many issues and concerns to be considered. Effective planning is necessary to achieve beneficial effects as well as maintain a safe burn. This program will cover topics related to fire history, planning, weather, safety, and equipment needs.
