The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation Agricultural Division will host an educational workshop on the benefits and the proper use of prescribed burning for habitat control and land management.

The Prescribed Burning Workshop is open to the public and will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 26, at the Noble Foundation's Kruse Auditorium and Lake Murray Field Trial Grounds.

"Prescribed burning is an important tool for managing and maintaining healthy native rangelands and pastures," said Ken Gee, wildlife research specialist. "This workshop focuses on familiarizing land managers with tools, techniques and other considerations necessary for implementing safe and effective prescribed burns."
