There is growing awareness and attention given to wildfires worldwide as we see increasingly devastating fire seasons impacting our forests and communities in frightening ways. A changing climate coupled with a century of fire suppression and an ever-increasing wildland urban interface are resulting in the “perfect storm” for catastrophic fire conditions.

Despite these challenges, fire is still gaining momentum as a management tool, and a solution, in curbing these catastrophic events while simultaneously promoting forest health and wildlife diversity. Join us as we explore the long relationships between fire, forests, and wildlife and how we can usher in a future of more prescribed fire on the land for healthier ecosystems and more resilient communities. ----
