Podcast Ep. 183: Prescribed Fire & Public Lands with Maia Larson

Host Bob St.Pierre is joined by Marissa Jensen, Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever’s education & outreach program manager and Women on the Wing initiative leader, for a conversation with Maia Larson, PF & QF’s first-ever fire and public lands program manager. In this newly created role, Larson will deliver strategic focus to the organization’s prescribed fire programs to improve habitat, while also providing direction to the organization’s habitat improvement efforts on private lands across the country.

Episode Highlights:  
  • Larson talks about the drip torch tattoo covering her right forearm, and why prescribed fire is so important to wildlife habitat that it has become a part of her identity.
  • Jensen provides an overview of the organization’s Women on the Wing initiative and points listeners to pheasantsforever.org/wotw for the latest news and calendar of events.
  • Larson also talks about living next to a public Wildlife Management Area in Arkansas and the value public lands mean to her personally.
