The Coastal Bend Prescribed Burn Association is a non-profit association of Texas Coastal Bend landowners and citizens whose purpose is to promote, train, and assist members and the public in the use of prescribed burning on their properties.  Members participate in the burns of other members and this reciprocation pools labor, making more burns possible, especially for smaller landowners with limited labor resources.


Our goal is to enhance and protect the natural habitat of our 12 member counties to benefit the landowners and citizens of those counties and the State of Texas.

The purpose of the South Central Texas Prescribed Burn Association (SCTPBA) is to promote the common good and general welfare of the people in South Central Texas through education, training, and practice of safe prescribed burn techniques. The application of prescribed fire reduces or eliminates fuel load build-up in open spaces, reducing fire intensity and/or preventing wild or unexpected fires in and near these burned open spaces. Prescribed burning is a useful tool for reducing hazardous fuel loads, improving wildlife and livestock habitat and improving vegetation quality.

Upper Llanos

The Upper Llanos Prescribed Burn Association (ULPBA) is a proactive conservation organization based in Kimble County, Texas whose goal 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.  We believe that prescribed range burning has historically proven to be the best and most cost-effective practice to promote this goal on a scale large enough to have a perceptible impact.  ULPBA members realize that fire is both a productive and potentially dangerous tool and have agreed to seek training and guidance to make their participation in this practice safe and effective.  ULPBA exists to promote and assist its membership but does not have the authority to sanction nor conduct a prescribed burn.  Even though the Association has no regulatory authority, the members have agreed to adhere to established guidelines in order to demonstrate due diligence.
