We will be burning one of the prairies on a steep slope, the one at Lookout Point. Meet at the HPT Parking Lot on Hwy FA: Saturday - Apr 12, starting at 9:45am with rain date of Sunday - Apr 13 at 9:45am.
No experience necessary, we will have some experienced folks there as Burn Boss and helping and they will train you. You do need to wear all cotton clothing and leather footwear - synthetics can burn your skin. A ball cap is a good idea with hair tied back as well as a bandana to cover your mouth. Also, wear your glasses that day and not contacts. We will have equipment for you although if you have a pair of leather gloves bring them.
If you can help, or have any other questions, please contact Stephanie at the Hixon Forest Nature Center:
