With greater emphasis and funding directed at hazardous fuels and wildlife habitat enhancement projects, agency staff are tasked to prepare more plans for vegetation treatments. The 2023 interagency workshop, hosted by the Alaska Fire Science Consortium and the AWFCG Interagency Fuels Management Committee, will follow up on the April 2022 interagency workshop, which emphasized understanding and compliance of resource laws and regulations. The 2023 agenda will focus more on project planning and implementation and is attached. The workshop will be both in person at UAF and online. Zoom information is in the agenda. In person capacity is limited, so we require registration, but participation is open and free. In person participants will need to pay for on campus parking ($5 for a day pass, available at kiosks).
The workshop will be followed on Wednesday, March 8 by a joint meeting of the AWFCG Fuels Management and Fire Research Development and Application committees and relevant researchers; please contact Alison York to express interest in participating if you are not a member of the committees. Agenda for that meeting is attached.
