Topic
Engaging Local Communities to Restore Fire-adapted Ecosystems

Description
Nationwide, the frequency and scale of catastrophic wildfires are growing at alarming rates, challenging forest and rangeland managers’ abilities to maintain ecologically resilient landscapes and fire-safe communities. To meet these demands, research and extension professionals are devising interactive and novel programs to engage and build capacity among landowners, agency land managers and decision-makers, environmental non-governmental organizations, and technical service professionals to address ecological, economic, and social dimensions of wildland and prescribed fire.

Speakers:
Lenya Quinn-Davidson, Area Fire Extension Advisor, University of California Cooperative Extension
Derek Scasta, Rangeland Extension Specialist, Assistant Professor of Rangeland Management, University of Wyoming
Jennifer Fawcett, Extension Associate, North Carolina State University Extension
