SOLD OUT | LCWM Prescribed Burn Crew Training

March 5 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Have you ever wanted to take part in a prescribed burn? Now’s your chance to complete the required training to join the Land Conservancy of West Michigan’s Burn Crew!

Fire is an important part of maintaining many West Michigan ecosystems. Prescribed burning encourages native vegetation, reduces invasive species and improves wildlife habitat—restoring health to our forests, wetlands and grasslands.

The Land Conservancy of West Michigan conducts prescribed burns on its nature preserves each spring, summer and fall. Volunteer burn crew members play an important role in all stages of prescribed burning, assisting with burn site preparation, ignition, fire control and monitoring.

Attending this training is required to join the burn crew. Past burn crew members are encouraged to attend the training as a refresher. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required to attend.

Sign up for the training to become a part of the Land Conservancy’s burn crew and play a role in a critically important ecological restoration activity!

PLEASE NOTE: This training does not provide attendees any official certification for conducting prescribed burns. It allows attendees to participate in prescribed burns conducted by the Land Conservancy of West Michigan.
