BEATRICE – A conference on the use of prescribed fire is coming up soon, in Kearney. It will be held December 7th, at the Holiday Inn.
Nebraska Game and Parks Wildlife Division Manager Alicia Hardin says the conference formerly was held in July, but the late year conference works a little better for producers, who have completed harvest. This will be the fifth year for the conference, which usually draws about 150 participants.
