Mixed Severity Fire Footprint in the Western Cascades

July 10, 2018 - 9:00am to 3:00pm

WHERE:  Middle Fork Ranger District, Willamette National Forest, Westfir, Oregon

WHAT:  Come explore the varied footprint of a mixed severity fire.  The Warner Fire burned approximately 3600 hectares in October, 1991, producing a range of post-fire conditions on the landscape. We will visit a variety of severity expressions, and discuss the spatial pattern and temporal changes this area has experienced, using data collected over the last 26 years. We’ll also discuss how fire suppression efforts have changed over the past quarter century, and the evolving social dimensions of fire on our landscapes.

WHO:  Sponsored by the NW Oregon Ecology Group and Central Cascades Adaptive Management Partnership.

TARGET AUDIENCE:   Practitioners and managers of forestlands and fire ecologists/researchers with an interest in mixed severity fire ecosystems.

HOW:  RSVP PLEASE BY JUNE 29 TO CFRIESEN@FS.FED.US
