North Atlantic Prescribed Fire
Science Workshop 2021

Tues, Sep 14 - Thurs, Sep 16  |  Workshop

all day each day

About the Event

We are hosting a workshop in September 2021 to reset, recharge, and reimagine the future of fire science co-production. The last year has posed unimaginable challenges to fire scientists, managers, and wildland firefighters. We are thrilled to have a plan to reconnect in person!

Join us for a three-day experience in a camp environment outdoors, at YMCA of the Pines in Medford Township, New Jersey. Spend time in the field with fellow fire science stakeholders. Get your thoughts working in the amazing classroom of New Jersey's prescribed fire landscape. We estimate that registration costs will be $50 per person per day, which will include meals, refreshments, and on-site lodging (exact cost will be determined and billed closer to the workshop date). We recommend registering for all three days of this workshop, but full registration is not required. Travel cost assistance is available; please email NAFSEhelp@gmail.com for details.
