   FREDERICKSBURG--The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service’s Pres-cribed Burn Manager Training will be held May 29-31 in Fredericksburg.
    The training will be at the AgriLife Extension office for Gillespie County, 95 Frederick Road.
    The course will be open to the public, but preregistration is required by May 24. Cost is $250. Preregister by emailing or calling Dr. Morgan Treadwell, Agri Life Extension range specialist, at morgan.treadwell@tamu.edu or 325-657-7317.
    “This three-day burn school is unique and the first of its kind in many ways,” said Treadwell.  “First, the school is made possible by the Bennett Trust Stewardship, managed by Dr. Larry Redmon, which is dedicated to conservation education and preservation of the Ed-wards Plateau. Second, this school will feature a host of outstanding guest lecturers who are all experts in their respective fields.”
    There will be a field day part of the course, which will require students to demonstrate an ability to safely participate in a prescribed burn.
    Limited seating is available and priority will be given to students who meet the experience requirements for Texas Depart-ment of Agriculture certification. Students who pass the final exam will meet the education requirements for becoming a TDA certified and insured prescribed burn manager in Region 2, West Texas.
