Eytan Krasilovsky shares challenges and lessons learned surrounding the Forest Guild's recent Black Lake Training Exchange. Forest Guild and the New Mexico State Land Office, with support from the Nature Conservancy's Fire Learning Network, convened a grant funded training exchange to burn 900 acres of state trust lands in a wildland-urban interface in northern New Mexico. Funded by the USDA Forest Service's Collaborative Forest Restoration Program, a diverse cadre of local and national firefighters was convened for 5 days and was comprised of both experienced and first-time firefighters. The after-action reviews contributed to meaningful lessons learned for the parties involved but also for those interested in implementing collaborative burning efforts elsewhere.
