Join us for a summit on the state of knowledge and available research on fire regimes for forests and grasslands west of the Cascade Range in Oregon and Washington. The summit will provide an opportunity for dialog and interaction between participants, discussion of shared field experiences, and will feature key speakers from the field of fire ecology. The target audience for this event is federal and state land managers, private forest land managers, fire managers, fuel specialists, collaborative groups in the wildland-urban interface, extension faculty, and other technical service providers and educators.

This summit will bring together fire professionals, land managers, collaboratives & communities, researchers, scientists, and outreach specialists to:

  1. Learn, review and discuss the available science on Westside fire regimes and implication for forest, woodland and grassland management, community preparedness and, where appropriate, restoration needs and current activities
  2. Identify challenges and research gaps;
  3. Determine strategies/tools to assist land managers and communities in the WUI

Adapting forest regeneration practices to changing climate, natural disturbances, policies, markets, and technology present continuous challenges and opportunities. Access to the best available scientific research on these topics is key to successfully adapting to these changes. This conference will bring together leading forest researchers and practitioners to share the latest research findings on managing forest regeneration and early stand dynamics in changing environments around the globe. Graduate student participation is highly encouraged!

For more information, see the Conference Website! First call for abstracts will be in November 2016. Registration opens April 2017.
