Join the Southern Fire Exchange, the Fire Science Exchange Network, and others as we participate in this hybrid-virtual conference!
From the conference webpage:
The Association for Fire Ecology is excited to host this event with Tall Timbers at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, November 30 to December 4, 2021. The Fire Congress will offer an exciting blend of in-person and virtual learning opportunities for fire managers, natural resource professionals, policy and administrative leaders, and the academic and research community. It is shaping up to be a groundbreaking and meaningful event that we hope you will join either in person or virtually!
The Southern Fire Exchange, Tall Timbers, and other partners are helping to arrange for an exciting lineup of fire science field trips in the North Florida region. Confirmed field trips will visit Eglin Air Force Base, Topsail Hill Preserve State Park, and Deer Lake State Park to learn about their prescribed fire management programs.Continue Reading

Fueling Collaboration is a series of interactive panel discussions designed to connect fire managers and researchers. Each discussion will be built on questions from the registered attendees. We’re working to bring people together to discuss, explore, and address the latest fire science and fire management issues across the eastern United States. The currently schedule discussions are:
- November 18 Fire and the Carbon Cycle
- December 16 Fire and Timber Management in Mixed Woods
- January 20 Smoke is NOT Just Smoke
- February 17 Fire and the Wildland Urban Interface in the Eastern US
- March 17 Thinking Beyond Fuel Reduction
Several research projects that aim to improve fire management with technological solutions are either underway or have been recently funded:Continue Reading
SFE Webinar: Moving to Hybrid Events – A Discussion with Natural Resource Professionals
September 23, 2021 1:00 – 2:30 PM ET
Hosted by NC State University Forestry Extension and the Southern Fire Exchange
We’ll hear from presenters from around the country who will share their personal experiences and lessons learned in moving their natural resource programs to a hybrid platform. They will cover various types of hybrid events, including meetings, trainings, workshops and large-scale conferences, and how to ensure accessibility. This event is open to everyone, but is targeted for natural resources professionals who are considering organizing hybrid events in the future.
The 2021 South Carolina Prescribed Fire Council Meeting will be held virtually via Zoom on September 15, 2021. Free registration here. More information and an agenda will be posted on the South Carolina Prescribed Fire Council website.Continue Reading

Field trips to New Jersey Pine Barrens sites will stimulate discussion about regional prescribed fire science challenges and solutions. The workshop day will build a structure for region-wide prescribed fire science co-production and post-workshop coordination.
Join us for a three-day experience in a camp environment outdoors, at YMCA of the Pines in Medford Township, New Jersey. Spend time in the field with fellow fire science stakeholders. Get your thoughts working in the amazing classroom of New Jersey’s prescribed fire landscape. We anticipate that registration costs will be $55 per person per day, which will include meals, refreshments, and on-site lodging (exact cost will be billed closer to the workshop date). We recommend registering for all three days of this workshop, but full registration is not required. Travel cost assistance is available; please email NAFSEhelp@gmail.com for details.
