SFE Webinar: Growing-Season Prescribed Fires and Ground-Nesting Birds
A free one hour webinar from Tall Timbers Research Station, the Southern Fire Exchange and the University of Florida.

Society of American Foresters CFE Credit Expected.

Presenters:
Jim Cox, Tall Timbers Research Station

Webinar Description: Millions of dollars have been spent over the past 20 years on reforestation of longleaf pine forests. Restoration will take time coupled with frequent and repeated application of prescribed burning. Burning is absolutely critical to restoration, but an appreciable number of individuals and groups now limit their opportunities to burn to a smaller and smaller burn window. The concern often voiced is that burning from April - July is detrimental to ground nesting/grassland birds and should be avoided. Restoration targets that require frequent burning and may not be achieved if the burn window becomes too narrow. This presentation will look at the science behind the use of fire during the "lightning season" (the months of April - July) and its effects on ground-nesting birds such as quail and Bachman’s sparrow.

Following the presentations there will be time for audience Q/A with the speaker.
