2018 Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation Science and Management Workshop


The Northern Rockies Fire Science Network is partnering with the Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation (WPEF) and the USDA Forest Service Forest Health Protection, Boise Field Office to host the 2018 WPEF Science Meeting and Workshop, September 20-22 in Stanley, Idaho. This year's workshop theme is Central Idaho Whitebark Pine: High, Dry and Burned

Come learn, discuss and see examples of impacts by wildfires and mountain pine beetle and how managers are dealing with these issues in Stanley, Idaho. Thursday will be an exciting day of presentations on current and developing research and management at the Stanley Community Center (seating limited to 100 people). This will be followed by a fun-filled evening of networking and a silent auction at the newly remodeled Mountain Village Bar/Restaurant. On Friday, join a field trip to Cache Creek Restoration Project on the Boise National Forest where the 2016 Rough and Pioneer Fires burned within weeks with widely different impacts. Saturday's field trip takes attendees to the 2012 Halstead fire on Salmon-Challis National Forest to discuss options for management in severely burned areas with little natural seeding and to foster a restoration partnership.

Lodging is available at Mountain Village Resort (208-774- 3661), and at other hotels and nearby campgrounds.
