Workshop: Finding Common Ground Regarding the Role of Wildfire in Northern New Mexico Landscapes

April 3rd, Santa Fe | Location and time TBD

Save the date for a workshop based on the recent report "A Statement of Common Ground Regarding the Role of Wildfire in Forested Landscapes of the Western United States". The workshop will closely examine the report with the expertise of one of the co-investigators, Craig Allen, as well as scientists Tom Swetnam, Ellis Margolis, Jens Stevens, and practitioners Dennis Carril, Eytan Krasilovsky, and Collin Haffey.

The working group who produced this report sought to identify, and partly explain, areas of scientific common ground and divergence among fire researchers, focusing specifically on dry conifer forests, in support of informing high-quality public discourse, policy, and management. The workshop will address similar issues among researchers and land managers specific to the Santa Fe area.

Stay tuned for a half-day agenda that will include group dialogue and interactive break out sessions.
