Prescribed Fire Science Workshop: Increasing the Pace and Scale of Prescribed Burning
September 15, 2020 - September 17, 2020
The Prescribed Fire Science Workshop is a series of virtual events, trainings, and networking opportunities that will connect fire scientists and land managers with the goal of increasing the pace and scale of prescribed burning in the northeastern United States. This series will lay the groundwork for continued exchange between scientists and managers, including more virtual events and (eventually!) at least one in-person meeting that will feature a prescribed burn (RxB).
This series will:
raise awareness of how evidence-based prescribed fire can be used as a tool to create safe, resilient, fire-adapted landscapes
empower participants to use modern scientific tools that will help them safely implement prescribed burns in their home units
inform decision-makers about how they can incorporate science-driven management decisions into their legislation
showcase New Jersey as an example of science-based fuels management
Participants can register for one of two tracks for this series:
A la carte registration: this option allows for maximum flexibility and a smaller time commitment, with invitations to attend the series’ overview events
Full registration: this option asks participants to participate fully in all interactive seminars and includes access to all series events
Both options are free of charge, but pre-registration is required.
