Webinar - Statutory, Regulatory and Legal Constraints on Prescribed Fire in the USA


Sponsored by the Southern Fire Exchange

Presented by Carissa Wonkka, Ph.D., University of Nebraska

Maintaining appropriate fire return intervals for fully functioning ecosystems can be difficult for a variety of reasons. Laws and regulations can place limitations on both the timing and extent of prescribed burning. In this webinar, Dr. Wonkka will present an overview of the legislative and legal landscape facing prescribed burners. She will also present data showing how different statutory configurations can alter the amount prescribed fire applied on private land. Following the webinar there will be time reserved for audience questions.
