Long-Term Vegetation Recovery and Reburn Potential Workshop


Long-Term Vegetation Recovery and Reburn Potential
Central Idaho Fire and Fuels Workshop

This workshop will bring local area and regional managers and scientists together to share recent research findings and discuss their implications for vegetation and wildland fire management. The workshop is designed to facilitate an exchange of ideas between scientists and managers and to encourage collaboration on developing post-fire vegetation management and wildland fire management strategies.

Bunkhouse accommodations for up to 32 attendees and meals at the McCall Outdoor Science School are being provided to workshop participants at no charge. Assistance with travel to and from the workshop may be available (see registration page). If registrations exceed space limitations, we will accept those registrations received on a first-come, first-serve basis. The draft agenda below provides a rough outline of the workshop topics and activities and will be updated as speakers are confirmed.

Northern Rockies Fire Science Network is partnering with the University of Idaho (Eva Strand), Rocky Mountain Research Station (Andrew Hudak), Pacific Northwest Research Station (Paul Hessburg and Nick Povak) and University of Washington (Susan Prichard) to coordinate this workshop.
