Webinar - Fire Behavior and Ecology of the Shrub Steppe

Description

This is the first of a five-webinar series. The sagebrush steppe is one of the largest ecosystems in North America and one of the most threatened due to human land use conversions, non-native plant invasions, and wildfire. This virtual series will introduce participants to the ecology of this unique ecosystem, the past and current role and impact of fire on the landscape, and to many of the brilliant folks working every day to manage and protect critical habitat, wildlife, and communities living with fire in the shrub steppe.

Alison Dean, Central Oregon Fire Management Service and U.S. Bureau of Land Management, and Martha Brabec, City of Boise, will provide an overview of: historic and modern fire behavior in different communities of the sagebrush biome, shrub steppe ecology, and post-fire restoration considerations.
