Smokey skies – What does it mean to ME?

We are planning a smoke workshop to bring together all stakeholders, including, but not limited to: federal and state regulatory and fire management agencies, tribal personnel and members, non-governmental organizations and community groups, members of the general public who would like to learn more.

This will be an interactive, inclusive workshop scheduled for November 6-8, 2014 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We are also looking at ways to deliver this workshop virtually or in small group sessions at an alternate location in addition to the primary location of Albuquerque.
