About the event

The Mid-Missouri River Prescribed Burn Association will celebrate its 6 year anniversary with an annual meeting at the Community Room in Bonesteel, SD at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 11, 2022.

The MMRPBA invites anyone interested in conducting prescribed burns to control cedar trees and improve grassland health to please attend the meeting.  Current memberships will be renewed and the MMRPBA is looking for new members who want to offer support to help control the “Cedar Glacier” that is taking over our grasslands.  The MMRPBA is the first prescribed burn association formed in South Dakota.  The organization’s core area includes:  Gregory, Charles Mix, Brule, and Lyman Counties.

Speaking this year will be Tim Steil of the former Mulehead Ranch in Bonesteel, SD.  Tim has many years of prescribed burn experience and will discuss his experiences conducting prescribed burns on the ranch over the past 5 years.  South Dakota State University graduate students Austin Domeier and Alanna Hartsfield will also provide presentations on research projects they are conducting on cedar tree encroachment in the Missouri River corridor.

A business meeting and supper will follow the presentations.  We would like to invite anyone who is interested in controlled burns as a means of improving your grasslands to please attend and consider joining the MMRPBA.  Dues are $25 for one year.  Please RSVP to one of the following individuals or our website or Facebook page so we have an accurate meal count.  Thank you!
