Restoring fire across the eastern U.S. landscape is complicated by a diverse mix of public and private land ownerships. In the Mid-Atlantic region, the potential for private lands burning is significant. A recent study examined landowner knowledge, attitudes, and willingness to pay for prescribed fire programs and compared survey results from states in New York through Virginia. Join us for a presentation and discussion on private lands burning in the Mid-Atlantic and the implications for increasing prescribed fire activities on private lands.
