Bringing People Together & Sharing Knowledge in the Northern Rockies

Webinars

In partnership with scientists and managers, we develop and host webinars to provide a forum for sharing information about specific topics or scientific resources in support of fire and fuels management.

We also maintain a broad Northern Rockies-relevant Recorded Media Database that contains webinars and presentations from multiple sources and can be searched by presenter, date, topic, and ecosystem.
