Living on the Edge of Change: Exploring the Dimensions of Restoring Fire Resilient Landscapes, Culture, & Economies on the Cascade Range’s Eastside

At this exciting joint meeting, scientists will share their research on the ecological and cultural aspects of fire and landscapes at Central Oregon Fire Science Symposium (COFSS) and the Northwest Science Association (NSA). Joint plenary session presentations will focus on alternative landscape futures, social factors, climate change and fire, and principles and examples of restoring fire-prone landscapes. Later presentations will discuss fire effects in sage-steppe ecosystems, fire in beetle killed lodgepole pine, fire and cavity nesters, fuels management, monitoring, public perceptions on preparing for wildfire, smoke management, and managing large fires.

Note:  The COFSS and NWSA meetings will be held simultaneously.  Each event has a separate registration and abstract submission processes and concurrent sessions on their specialized topics. Only the joint plenary session, poster session, and field trips are open to attendees of each meeting.
