The Nature Conservancy Fire Learning Network (FLN) hosts several Prescribed Fire Training Exchanges (TREX) in various locations around the U.S. every year. During these 2 to 3 week events, participants gain prescribed fire experience by assisting with large burns designed to meet management objectives of the selected location and participating organizations. Participants are given the opportunity to work on their Position Task Books by taking on various roles throughout the training and are exposed to new people, places, and fire management techniques. For more information, visit the FLN website. You can also check out a list of upcoming TREX events.
October 24 – November 5
Southern Blue Ridge TREX
Tall Timbers Tallahassee, FL
The 2nd SBR TREX is scheduled to take place October 24 – November 5, 2021. The SBR TREX Planning Team made the difficult decision to move the dates to 2021 after carefully considering the safety of the local community, our participants, agency travel restrictions and other factors. We are all looking forward to building another incredible training opportunity this year. Applications are now open! Applications will be accepted until July 17, 2021 and all applicants will be informed by August 15.
In addition, other organizations host training exchanges throughout the year. While there is not a central website to learn about these events, we will list any that are in or near our region on the SFE Calendar.
