Wildland Restoration International (WRI) is excited to announce prescribed burn assistance to landowners participating in USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) cost share programs. WRI is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help manage wildland fire for the benefit of people and wildlife. With three offices throughout the Florida peninsula, WRI has been assisting local landowners, public agencies, and other organizations with prescribed burning for several years. The organization has been awarded funding from the Endowment for Forestry and Communities to help landowners implement prescribed burning practices funded by the NRCS. WRI representatives are available to meet onsite with landowners to discuss their goals and assist with prescribed burn prescription and implementation.
