Prescribed Fire Science Series

Increasing the pace and scale of prescribed burning through the co-production of fire science in the scientist-manager community.


Synopsis

The Prescribed Fire Science Workshop Series is a collection of virtual events, trainings, and networking opportunities that connected fire scientists and land managers with the goal of increasing the pace and scale of prescribed burning in the northeastern United States. This series was created to lay the groundwork for continued exchange between scientists and managers, including more virtual events and (eventually!) at least one in-person meeting that will feature a prescribed burn (RxB).


Series objectives:

  • raise awareness of how evidence-based prescribed fire can be used as a tool to create safe, resilient, fire-adapted landscapes

  • empower participants to use modern scientific tools that will help them safely implement prescribed burns in their home units

  • inform decision-makers about how they can incorporate science-driven management decisions into their legislation

  • showcase New Jersey as an example of science-based fuels management
