2019 Crown Managers Partnership Forum: Dispelling the Myths of Wildfire in the Crown


The Crown Managers Partnership (CMP) is a multi-jurisdictional partnership amongst federal, state, provincial, tribal and First Nation agency managers and universities in Montana, Alberta and British Columbia. Hosted in partnership with the Northern Rockies Fire Science Network, the theme of the 19th annual CMP Forum is "Dispelling the Myths of Wildfire in the Crown." Taking place in Cranbrook, B.C., March 19-21, 2019, the Forum has a number of objectives: 

  • Deepen understanding of past, present, and future traditional knowledge of fire and its use in the Crown;
  • Present current understanding of fire how and why regimes and intensities are changing
  • Integrate climate change and fire and its relationship to terrestrial and aquatic systems and the human environment
  • Provide tools, lessons learned, and effective best management practices for managers to take home and utilize
