Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness and Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness Fire Science Workshop was held on June 27-28, 2023.
This was a two-day event:
- June 27: Workshop in Darby, MT (agenda link to right)
- June 28: A field day based out of the Historic Magruder Ranger Station on the West Fork Ranger District of the Bitterroot National Forest.
The workshop addressed issues including post-fire effects, prescribed fire, aquatic systems, fire messaging, and the social issues around fire in Wilderness. Even under soggy conditions, the evening's cookout allowed everyone to make new connections and enjoy a meal together. The second day's field trip had lively discussion about the barriers and opportunities for wilderness fire management.
