The Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009, which established the Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration (CFLR) Program, asks that CFLR projects “Facilitate the reduction of wildfire management costs and risks, including through reestablishing natural fire regimes.”
Across the county, CLFR project participants are thinking about this charge and working to expand the role of prescribe fire on project landscapes.
In this upcoming peer learning session we’ll delve further into the role of prescribed fire. With experts in the field of fire science and management, participants will learn about current science around prescribed fire, a case study from the White Mountain Stewardship Project, and resources available to guide prescribed fire management. Speakers will discuss barriers and challenges related to use of prescribed fire and spend time in Q&A with participants. We hope you can attend!
