*If weather permits participants will burn the small Town Hall prairie planting on-site in the afternoon. If burn conditions permit, participants will stay until burn is completed.
To participate in the burn you must wear non-synthetic clothing – such as denim, long sleeved cotton shirt or sweatshirt, cotton hat or baseball cap, leather boots, leather gloves, safety glasses/eye glasses/sun glasses. Bring additional food or snacks in case we are able to burn and need to stay beyond 4:30.
TPE will provide back cans, drip torches, flappers, radios and other fire equipment.
