UPDATE: We are very sorry to announce that, due to the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19, and the result of cancellation of travel by a number of agencies, tribes, and organizations (many of whom were speakers and or participants), the 2020 Fire in the Crown of the Continent Forum, scheduled for March 10-12, 2020, has been cancelled. We will be rescheduling this Forum at a later date. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding of this situation.  This webpage will be updated with new dates as they are announced.

The Northern Rockies Fire Science Network is partnering with the Crown Managers Partnership to bring you the Fire in the Crown of the Continent Forum: Trans-boundary Collaborative Solutions to Landscape Scale Ecosystem Management. The Crown Managers Partnership is a multi-jurisdictional partnership among federal, state, provincial, tribal, and first nation agency managers and universities in Montana, Alberta, and British Columbia. Annual forums facilitate networking opportunities, build collaboration, and deepen understanding of common issues in the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem.

This year's forum will focus on fire, with the following themes:

Session 1 - Fire Past and Future: Fact, Fiction and Uncertainty

Session 2 - Active Use of Fire: First Nations TEK and How Fire is Used as a Tool

Session 3 - Fire in the Human Environment

Session 4 - Fire Management in Practice

Session 5 - Fire in Terrestrial and Aquatic Systems
