A JFSP Fire Science Exchange Network
Bringing People Together & Sharing Knowledge in the Northern Rockies

Webinar & Video Archive

In addition to NRFSN-sponsored webinars and videos, the NRFSN catalogs Northern Rockies-relevant webinars and videos produced by other entities. This webinar archive can be searched by presenter, date, topic, and/or ecosystem type. The archive includes recordings from the Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP), the International Association of Wildland Fire (IAWF), the Wildand Fire Lessons Learned Center (WFLLC), Fire Research and Management Exchange System (FRAMES), the Missoula Fire Sciences Laboratory, the Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative, and other JFSP fire science exchanges.
