Fire symposium coming to Redding

Experts will discuss fire management in the national forests of Northern California during an all-day symposium March 19 at the McConnell Foundation in Redding.

The 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. meeting will be titled, "The Future of Fire, Fuels, and Forest Management: Implications of emerging science in southern Cascade and Klamath mixed-conifer forests".

From the University of California's Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources:
Making sense of new research on fire severity

In the last couple of years, a wealth of new research has come out on fire regimes and fire severity in northern California forests. However, the management implications of these studies are not always clear, and the science can be complex and difficult to fully understand. This event will include presentations by the scientists who are doing this research, a diverse panel of land managers who will discuss specific management implications, and facilitated discussions to address the questions, concerns, and ideas of the audience.

Who should attend?

All interested individuals and groups are invited to participate in this event. The topics will likely be of particular interest to public, private, and tribal lands managers in northern California, as well as students, community and non-profit groups, and researchers, among others.
