Post-Fire Regeneration and Fuels Workshop Series - Missoula, MT

This workshop series aims to engage forest managers in co-developing management strategies that help manage tree regeneration and fuels, and adapt to climate change impacts in post-fire environments. These efforts are designed to inform and learn from forest managers across various sectors in the Northern Rockies region, and to produce useable materials to facilitate post-fire management. This workshop flyer has additional details on specific topics that will be covered.  

The workshop presenters have synthesized the science on the implications of a changing climate on post-fire tree regeneration and fuels, drawing upon meta-analysis of observed post-fire tree regeneration, or lack of it, as influenced by burn severity and climate across 52 fires within mixed-conifer forests of the Rockies. They will incorporate tree regeneration data, post-fire fuels data, and projected climate of the next 40 years into strategies developed with managers.   

Additional Workshop Dates and Locations:

March 6: McCall, ID
March 7: Boise, ID
March 8: Jackson Hole, WY
