****************************************************************
The Utah Biomass Resources Group and the Logan Ranger District invite you to a Big Box Biochar Kiln demonstration. The purpose is to introduce an alternative to pile burning by investigating the use of large containers, similar to a dumpster, that can produce biochar, a carbon-rich soil amendment. The location is approximately 1.25 miles up from the mouth of Providence Canyon, south of Logan, Utah (a high clearance vehicle is recommended). This work is supported by a Utah Public Lands Initiative Grant, provided by the Utah State Legislature. We will provide lunch to anyone that RSVP's by Thursday, November 7 at 5 pm. RSVP by emailing Megan Dettenmaier megan.dettenmaier@usu.edu.
