NAFSE Prescribed Fire Science Workshop Webinar Series - 3-day Intensive Virtual Workshop

Description

SYNOPSIS

The Prescribed Fire Science Workshop is a series of virtual events, trainings, and networking opportunities that will connect fire scientists and land managers with the goal of increasing the pace and scale of prescribed burning in the northeastern United States. This series will lay the groundwork for continued exchange between scientists and managers, including more virtual and (eventually!) at least one in-person meeting that will feature a prescribed burn (RxB).

This series will:

  • raise awareness of how evidence-based prescribed fire can be used as a tool to create safe, resilient, fire-adapted landscapes
  • empower participants to use modern scientific tools that will help them safely implement prescribed burns in their home units
  • inform decision-makers about how they can incorporate science-driven management decisions into their legislation
  • showcase New Jersey as an example of science-based fuels management

Participants can register for one of two tracks for this series:

  1. A la carte registration: this option allows for maximum flexibility and a smaller time commitment, with invitations to attend the series’ overview events
  2. Full registration: this option asks participants to participate fully in all interactive seminars and includes access to all series events

Both options are free of charge, but pre-registration is required. Please help the North Atlantic Fire Science Exchange (NAFSE) spread the word about this series..
