Crafting Solutions for Wildland and Prescribed Fires Across Tribal and Nontribal Jurisdictions

2012 Returning Fire to the Land Workshop in Polson, MT

In May 2014, the NRFSN hosted a workshop designed to integrate wildland and prescribed fire management across jurisdictional boundaries. Workshop participants built on discussions from our 2012 Celebrating Traditional Knowledge and Fire Workshop in Polson, MT where tribal members, land managers, scientists, and students explored challenges and solutions to integrating traditional knowledge and fire management.

A journal article on the findings from this and the 2012 workshop has been published: Returning fire to the land - Celebrating traditional knowledge and fire.
