Fire in the Shrub Steppe Webinar 5: ENGAGING COMMUNITIES IN FIRE ADAPTATION

December 17 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

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.
