Notes from the Field Number 180: Southern Blue Ridge Fire Fair, highlights from a public outreach event in North Carolina, with links to Learn-and-Burns

If you work in wildland fire, you are asked lots of questions about how and why. How do you conduct a prescribed fire? How do you put out wildfires? Why do you do controlled burns? So in the Southern Blue Ridge region, several FLN partners are hosting workshops to help the public better understand wildland fire. The new Southern Blue Ridge Prescribed Burn Association recently worked closely with the Forest Stewards Guild to hold one such event on the campus of Warren Wilson College, just outside Asheville.
