Nibert’s Wildlife Management class conducted their annual controlled burn on State Game Lands 252 near the Schneebeli Earth Science Center on Tuesday. “This was the best burn that we ever conducted,” said the assistant professor of forestry. “The students gain valuable experience in the control of wildfires through this wildlife-management practice. The main purpose is to control invasive plants and maintain grass cover.” ( Photos by Donald R. Nibert, assistant professor of forestry.)
