The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), Florida Forest Service and Tall Timbers, in cooperation with University of Florida/IFAS and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service, are hosting two workshops in northwest Florida to guide private landowners through the process of writing a burn prescription.
The workshops, offered by the FWC’s Landowner Assistance Program, will be held in Okaloosa and Washington counties in December. The locations and times are:
Dec. 5 (8:30 a.m. to noon)

3098 Airport Road in Crestview
Dec. 18 (8:30 a.m. to noon)

Private landowners are invited to learn about the process of writing a burn prescription using a designated location and current conditions, learn the importance of burn plan development in private land management and learn how USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service provides financial assistance for prescribed burning.
