"Absolutely the most interesting talk and study in fire ecology I have heard in the last ten years."
—Candadian Fire Research Officer
Wildfire scientists and managers are faced with challenging conditions in the Southern Rocky Mountain region: widespread increase in population & housing, dramatic change and decline in forest health, invasive weeds, combined with drought conditions & abundant fuels in areas characterized by shifting winds.
Southern Rockies Fire Science Network (SRFSN) addresses these issues by supporting communication among scientists, managers, practitioners, and communities through workshops, webinars, presentations, fieldtrips, research briefs, and online resources, helping professionals and communities develop science-based solutions.
SRFSN is actively seeking science exchange opportunities in many parts of our region, as well as individuals to participate in steering committee support and planning.

NFPA Backyards and Beyond Conference
A good time was had by all at the NFPA Backyards and Beyond conference in Salt Lake City last week. Amazing progress is being made nationwide regarding wildand-urban interface education, research, and planning. SRFSN will be posting links to significant regional presentations (powerpoints) as they become available through NFPA.

The Human-Side of Restoration Webinar Series
The U.S. Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station and the Colorado Forest Restoration Institute are excited to launch the "Human-Side of Restoration Webinar Series." This series of six webinars will provide a forum for managers and social scientist to share their insights and experiences with the "human side" of restoration, including the interface among ecological restoration, human communities, and individual values, public opinions, and social structures. The first webinar will be held on December 10th from 10:30-12:00 MDT.
