The Mid-Missouri River Prescribed Burn Association of South Dakota completed prescribed burns on 688 acres in 2017 and 271 acres in 2018 and 314 acres in 2020. For 2021, over 2,000 acres are planned for prescribed burns, but we can’t achieve that goal without participation from landowners.  Join the effort  to help combat cedar tree invasion, reclaim lost grazing lands and eliminate wildfire risks along the Missouri River Corridor.
