What is ForestHer – On FIRE? It is a hands-on workshop that focuses on teaching women landowners about Alabama’s historic fire regime and how it can be used as an effective land management tool. Come dressed and ready to go to the woods! Most of day one you will be indoors learning about fire behavior, safety, and management techniques. The remaining portion of the class will be spent in the woods applying what you have learned in the classroom. Weather permitting, students will see a prescribed fire.
When? 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday, March 13, and 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Tuesday, March 14.
Who can attend? Women who love nature and learning about the natural world. You don’t have to own a lot of land. If you have even one acre, this workshop is for you!
Where? Auburn University School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences
