PLEASE JOIN US FOR THE 26TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE CALIFORNIA SOCIETY FOR ECOLOGICAL RESTORATION “Beyond Recovery: Restoration for the Future”
The Spring Fire MOU* Partnership will discuss Barriers to Burning, Pyrosilviculture, Fire and Reforestation, Fire's Role in Restoring Burned Landscapes, Pyrodiversity, and Air Quality. Registration is now open at https://goo.gl/forms/JVSGXZeP8DXZr7bf1
The WiRē (Wildfire Research) Team has worked with many communities to help them better understand their residents' relationships with wildfire risk. Here, we will describe unique aspects of the WiRē approach, and present results from our recent paper investigating the variation in survey and rapid assessment results within and across different communities in Colorado.
The workshop consists of two intense days of entertaining hands-on activities for teaching students about wildland fire behavior, ecology, management and more.

Sierran forests are facing catastrophic wildfires, vast overstory mortality, extreme understory fuel loading, high vegetative density, and limited regional market options. The incorporation of fire use with fuel and density management treatments is becoming of increasing interest as a tool in the effort to restore Central Sierra forestlands. Can we use fire in a way that sustains timber objectives? Come join us for presentations, a field tour, and thoughtful discussions.
