Preparing for Wildfires: Moving from Crisis to Opportunity

This workshop will equip Cooperative Extension professionals and other community leaders with the tools needed to successfully face the challenges of living in wildfire-prone environments.  National-level scientists and experts will help attendees think through all aspects and stages of fire – before, during, and after – in both urban and rural landscapes.  Extension personnel will be invited to share their challenges and success stories.  Information will be shared about the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy and its goal of developing fire-adapted communities.  The workshop will include two days of presentations and interactive discussions, a poster session, and an optional scenic and educational field trip to a community and forest recovering from wildfire.
