About the Mini-Symposium

The NAFSE Fire & Fire History Working Group is hosting its first mini-symposium on Wednesday, February 28th at 12:00 PM EST to bring together fire researchers from the region to share their work, knowledge, and passion. We hope you can join us for a suite of short presentations and Q & A, followed by discussion.


Our speakers will cover a range of historical fire regime topics from the New Jersey pine barrens to the woods of Maine, including:


- Mary Ellen Lepionka on Indigenous fire use in the coastal Northeast.

- Inga La Puma on the role of fires in the barrens and more broadly.

- Michael Stambaugh on some new tree-ring fire histories in Maine.


The mini-symposium will take place on Wednesday, February 28th from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EST. We will have an hour of presentations followed by rich discussion. We hope to see you there!
