Dr. Eric Rowell, Wildland
Fire Scientist with Tall Timbers Research Station, will speak about new
technologies for prescribed fires.
In the West, years of fire suppression have
left many forests with accumulations of fuel, putting communities at risk. In
the Southeast however, we have been maintaining landscapes using prescribed
fire and are increasingly viewed as a model toward which other regions strive.
Hurricane Michael however changed everything. The effects of the storm have
challenged the way we treat large swaths of land, land that now has high-risk
fuel accumulations. Come learn about a new paradigm, an east-to-west strategy
that is hoped to help restore our forests, coast to coast.
