"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.
