Patterns of conifer regeneration following high severity wildfire in ponderosa pine-dominated forests

Date: January 18, 2017, 12pm MST
Presenter: Marin Chambers, Colorado Forest Restoration Institute, CSU

The past two decades have witnessed fires of increased severity in southern Rocky Mountain ponderosa pine – dominated forests. Marin will discuss results from an ongoing project that is characterizing post-fire conifer regeneration in severely burned patches, and how regeneration characteristics are governed by aspect, distance from live trees, and other factors. To register now, click HERE!

Beyond hazardous fuels: Managing fire for social, economic, and ecological benefits

This is a Southwest Regional Fire Ecology and Management Conference in partnership with the Association for Fire Ecology. Planning has begun, so save the dates for this conference in Tucson, Arizona November 28 – December 2, 2016. This conference is being held concurrently with the 1st Applied Fire Science Workshop! Visit the website here!

Fires of Change – A Science & Art Collaborative

This project is designed to integrate fire and climate science with art to offer a unique interpretation for the northern Arizona community. Together with partners, Landscape Conservation Initiative (LCI) and Flagstaff Arts Council (FAC), we selected 11 artists to participate. In September 2014, these artists attended field trips to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and other locations in northern Arizona with fire managers and scientists to learn about fire and climate science. The resulting art exhibition showed in Flagstaff from September 5 – October 31, 2015.

This exhibit is now on hiatus, but we hope to bring it back in New Mexico next year! Stay tuned!

We created a short video to provide a basic description of the process for this project below as well as a general video on fire and climate science, both of which will be showing at the Coconino Center for the Arts during the exhibition.
