Forty Years of Prescribed Fire in Southeast MN State Parks
Sean Fitcher, Resources Specialist, Minnesota DNR, will share a brief history of prescribed fire in SE State Parks from the first burns to the present. He will describe how we have adjusted to changing constraints and objectives over the years. A series of success stories will be highlighted. Lastly, he will discuss challenges and potential solutions to managing natural resources with prescribed fire. If there is time, he can discuss other natural resource management activities in Whitewater State Park or other bluff land state parks, as well as share some findings from recent timber rattlesnake radio telemetry work we have completed.
This is part of the Health Older People (HOP) program.
