If you are curious about how to use prescribed burning for your land management goals or you would like to know how FENCE is using prescribed burns, plan to come and learn.
North Carolina Forest Service Polk County Ranger, Brian Rogers, will speak about the benefits of prescribed burning and answer any questions about the upcoming FENCE prescribed burn. Brian explains, “The NC Forest Service uses prescribed burning to assist in timber management, reduce the risk of wildfires, improve wildlife habitat, and to prepare areas for tree planting. It is a great tool for land management.”
Brian has been with the NC Forest Service for over 6 years. He is a graduate of Haywood Community College where he majored in Forestry and Fish/Wildlife Management.
FENCE is a non-profit dedicated to providing facilities and focus for education, recreation and preservation in nature studies and equestrian activities with the aim of enhancing these endeavors to enrich the quality of life for the community.
This program is made possible by the Kirby Endowment Fund at Polk County Community Foundation.
