The one-day field-based workshop on March 11, 2015 sponsored by NAFSE and SEMPBA focused on fire in land management, one of the unique features of the Pine Barrens ecosystem. We invited participation from the spectrum of land managers at work in the Pine Barrens, including municipal, state, federal, private, and non-governmental organizations, as well as fire scientists and managers from further afield. Presentations and field tour stops examined themes in restoration, habitat management, ecological goal-setting, prescribed burning techniques, and the potential for fire planning in the future of the Pine Barrens.
If you missed this field trip you can take a virtual field trip to find out more about the sites we visited.
