Upper Llanos Prescribed Burn Association is a proactive conservation organization of "Neighbors Assisting Neighbors" based in Kimble County, Texas.
ULPBA has over 50 members and associate members, most of whom are actively involved with the organization. Fire is both a productive and potentially dangerous tool. Membership guidelines and policy require members to seek training, guidance and actual field experience at prescribed burns, to help make their participation in this practice safe and effective.
The goal of ULPBA is to enhance the productivity of the land and provide more water to the aquifer by reducing runoff, erosion and competition from ashe juniper, while simultaneously reducing wildfire fuels.
A primary objective of ULPBA has also been to educate members and the public about the methods and benefits of prescribed burning when strictly adhering to safe and proven guidelines.
