If you are interested in conducting a prescribed burn on your property, there is an excellent booklet on the subject, entitled
HOW TO MANAGE SMALL PRAIRIE FIRES by Wayne R. Pauly, Dane County Naturalist in Madison, Wisconsin.
Send $3 per booklet to:
Dane County Park Commission
4315 Robertson Road
Madison, WI 53714
Contact your nearest Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) Regional Office or nearest office of the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) for assistance in planning your burn. State law requires you to attend a certification class before conducting your own unsupervised burns.
