A Century of Wildland Fire Research: Contributions to Long-term Approaches for Wildland Fire Management.

March 27, 2017 - 4:45am to 9:30am

Wildland fires in the United States have burned a larger number of acres annually over the past 20 years than at any time during the past century—at an enormous cost. Developing long-term wildland fire management approaches is more important than ever but also more difficult because of increasingly dry conditions in some areas of the country, the expansion of the urban-wildland interface, and other factors. Join this workshop to discuss what has been learned from the wildland fire research that the U.S. Forest Service, other federal agencies, and research organizations have conducted and supported over the past century and how it might be applied toward more effective planning and management. The event will be held from 7:45 to 12:30 EDT on March 27, 2017 in the NAS Auditorium at 2101 Constitution Ave, Washington DC and will be simultaneously webcast for remote viewing and attendance.
