FOR THE WILD: Firebreak construction party at Tunnelville Cliffs

August 10, 2022
9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
after prairie burn at TCSNA

Join a volunteer work party to help create a new firebreak for a prescribed burn planned for spring 2023.  If you’re interested in learning how to install a firebreak on your own land, this is a good opportunity to learn how! We’ll provide all the necessary PPE so all you’ll need to bring is a lunch, plenty of drinking water, and plan to wear long pants with sturdy work boots (a long sleeve or overshirt is also recommended to protect against the sun, bugs, and thorns).

Please sign up below so we know how much equipment to bring.
