The Pollination of Native Plants

Heather is a National Honorary Director of Wild Ones and award-winning author of Pollinators of Native Plants, Bees, Wasps, and Common Native Bees of the Eastern United States.


Prescribed Burn School

This 1-day class is for people without previous burn experience or those who want a refresher. The training follows the guidelines of the Wisconsin Prescribed Fire Council and is taught by The Prairie Enthusiasts volunteers. Successful participation in this training, plus a half-day field practical course provided by a local chapter, and helping on two The Prairie Enthusiasts burns as an apprentice, provides the qualifications to be a new crew member on The Prairie Enthusiasts burns.

Key topics addressed:

  • Why do we burn? Fire ecology
  • Fire behavior
  • Fire suppression
  • Safety on the fire line
  • Burn crew roles
