A burn boss is someone who can responsibly schedule, plan, and oversee a prescribed fire over a wide variety of terrain, weather, etc. The state is trying to support certified burn bosses as a way to alleviate the current insurance stranglehold on prescribed burning so that the permit requirements will be much more reasonable during the wet months of the year.

The class needs 16 students registered to move forward, and otherwise it will be cancelled. Cost: $35.
