Every three years land managers, scientists, tribes, conservationists and community members gather to discuss fire management, history and ecology in the Klamath Mountains and beyond. Nowhere else in the country are the social, cultural, and ecological realities of fire discussed with such candor and connection to place.
This webinar will present our results from the Sierra Nevada and southwestern ponderosa pine forests in an effort to provide insight into the future of managing for adaptive capacity in fire-prone forest ecosystems.
Join us in supporting and/or attending the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy Workshop—All Hands, All Lands: Implementation Rooted in Science being held in Reno, Nevada APRIL 25-27, 2017.
Recording now available!
Last spring's Fort McMurray wildfire forced the unprecedented evacuation of 90,000 people, caused insurable losses of about $3.8 billion and dampened Canada's GDP for 2016. Dr. Mike Flannigan detailed what happened in Fort McMurray and what it told us about coexisting with fire in a flammable landscapes.
In their new book Why Forests? Why Now? Frances Seymour and Jonah Busch synthesize the latest research on the importance of tropical forests in a way that is accessible to anyone interested in climate change and development and to readers already familiar with the problem of deforestation.

Presented by the EN Tribal Governance Group and the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professional, the Tribal Exchange Network Conference provides tribes, and those working with tribes, an opportunity to meet, share, and learn about current initiatives, funding, and technical topics related to the Exchange Network.

The objectives of the conference are to have participants learn about and contribute to implementation of the Integrated Rangeland Fire Management Strategy Actionable Science Plan

This talk will focus on a four-step approach to integrating wildfire planning for the wildland-urban interface (WUI) through a variety of planning and implementation processes that work across departments within local governments.
ISS2 will bring together researchers from the atmospheric sciences, the ecological sciences, mathematicians, computer sciences, climatologists, social scientists, health professionals, smoke responders and others to discuss the complex issues of wildland fire smoke and identify knowledge gaps and opportunities for innovation and development.
Native Waters on Arid Lands project seeks to build capacity among tribal communities in the Great Basin and American Southwest to enhance climate resiliency of water resources and agriculture. Join them on November 9-10, 2016 for their second annual Tribal Summit at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This meeting will be focused on continuing the good work that's been done since the joint symposium meeting in 2014 with the Northern Sierra Prescribed Fire Council, and how to identify and address challenges of implementation of prescribed fire by providing an open dialog between agencies, regulators, tribes, and the public.
The overall conference title is "Building Resilience," designed to reflect a critical fire management objective of our time: changing patterns of wildland fire and other stressors will demand resiliency within our landscapes, communities, and fire management organizations.
In this talk, Dr. Emily Moran will describe past work investigating the dispersal ability and potential for evolutionary responses in trees and other long-lived plants, and her current projects focusing on how inter- and intra-specific responses of Sierra Nevada pines to changes in temperature and aridity may affect forest dynamics and managment best-practices in the future.
This conference is an excellent opportunity to describe your work in Yosemite National Park as well as the greater Sierra Nevada region. In light of the likely La Nina event, the suggested conference theme is "Effects of multiple below-average years."
The CNH Forest Fire Council 2016 Fall Workshop theme is "Line of Duty Death: Prevention/Management/Safety." The 2-day event includes a Staff Ride field trip led by the Nevada State Division of Forestry.
We encourage you to mark your calendar and join us to celebrate the California SAF Centennial and the future of California forestry
NatureBridge has partnered with the US Forest Service’s Rocky Mountain Research Station, Missoula Fire Sciences Lab to offer a two-day workshop on the science of wildland fire.
This training is designed for fire prevention specialists, fire information officers, interpretive rangers, environmental educators, and classroom teachers.
The Firewise virtual workshop series provides conference quality, free learning opportunities for wildfire stakeholders, by connecting them with leading researchers and practitioners in a live interactive format. Each session is an hour-long and features a wildfire related topic that closes with questions received directly from participants.
This webinar discusses findings from a project that profiled five urban areas across the west for the most effective land use planning measures to reduce wildfire risk. Examples of the most compelling land use planning tools are summarized and provide an opportunity for others to learn how urban areas in the West are increasingly becoming wildfire-adapted communities.
This webinar will discuss two new fire regime publications—Fire Regime Reports and Fire Regime Syntheses—that are now available and spatially searchable in the recently updated user interface for the Fire Effects Information System (FEIS, www.feis-crs.org/feis/)
