Prescribed fire is often implemented only during the dormant season (i.e. during a short portion of the entire seasonal burnwindow). The effects of growing season burns differ significantly from dormant season burns. Join us for a webinar presented by Jack McGowan-Stinski, Program Manager for the Lake States Fire Science Consortium, as he outlines lessons from growing season burns, using examples from oak-pine and jack pine barrens (the latter of which behave similarly to pitch pine in our region). Jack's talk will explore fire effects, fire behavior, smoke, phenology, natural community response, monitoring, and other elements of seasonality in prescribed burns.
