Webinar - Addressing Equity and Environmental Justice in the Forest Service’s Wildfire Crisis Strategy

Description

Presenters:

  • Susan Charnley, US Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station
  • Mark Adams, US Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station

The U.S. Forest Service’s Wildfire Crisis Strategy, and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that is funding the agency’s initial investments to reduce wildfire risk under the Strategy, both call for considering equity and environmental justice when implementing projects. We present practical applications of our research on the environmental justice implications of hazardous fuels reduction, including new tools, that help address this need.

This webinar is the second in the Equity and Environmental Justice Webinar Series

Sponsors: Northwest Fire Science Consortium Oregon State University Extension Fire Program
