Will you be attending the Central Oregon Fire Science Symposium next month?

I will!

Here are the specifics:

3rd Central Oregon Fire Science Symposium – Please Join Us for an amazing “Week of Fire”

The week kicks-off Monday morning with the Ecological and Social Effects of Fire, a four day introductory course aimed at fuels and resource specialists and students interested in fire ecology offered in conjunction with the Central Oregon Fire Science Symposium and the Oregon Prescribed Fire Council meeting.

On Tuesday and Wednesday scientists will share their research at the 3rd Central Oregon Fire Science Symposium. Of particular note will be presentations on the recently completed Forests, People, Fire project; the effects of the Pole Creek Fire; fire history in lodgepole pine; fire in moist mixed conifer forests; wildfire and insect interfaces; and the effects of fire in Great Basin ecosystems.

Thursday is the inaugural meeting of the Oregon Prescribed Fire Council which will bring together a diverse group of people from around the state to discuss common issues of prescribed fire and the formation of a formal organization.

Join me in Bend, Oregon April 7th to the 10th, 2014 as we learn more about fire in our western landscapes.
