Fire is a natural part of both forest and grassland ecology. The human tendency to suppress fire can sometimes allow invasive plants to out-compete native grasses and flowers, therefore reducing plant and animal diversity. Prescribed burns, also known as controlled fires, can be a valuable tool in habitat management and restoration. In this webinar, learn how several WHC-certified programs successfully use prescribed fire to manage and restore native habitat.
