Fire in the Shrub Steppe Webinar 1: FIRE BEHAVIOR AND ECOLOGY OF THE SHRUB STEPPE
October 29, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 pm
Fire in the Shrub Steppe Webinar Series
The sagebrush steppe is one of the largest ecosystems in North America and one of the most threatened due to human land use conversions, non-native plant invasions, and wildfire. This five-part virtual series will introduce us to the ecology of this unique ecosystem, the past and current role and impact of fire on the landscape, and to many of the brilliant folks working every day to manage and protect critical habitat, wildlife, and communities living with fire in the shrub steppe.
You may register for one, some, or all of the webinars.
Webinar 1: FIRE BEHAVIOR AND ECOLOGY OF THE SHRUB STEPPE
Alison Dean, Central Oregon Fire Management Service and U.S. Bureau of Land Management, and Marth Brabec, City of Boise, will provide an overview of: historic and modern fire behavior in different communities of the sagebrush biome, shrub steppe ecology, and post-fire restoration considerations.
